The picture of these two went viral after they were said to have been the gunmen who shot dead a soldier in Chivhu.

But they are robbers who were arrested in Harare and appeared at the Harare Magistrates Courts yesterday.

Mbonisi Ndlovhu (35) and David Zungura (29) were not asked to plead to armed robbery charges when they appeared before Harare magistrate Mrs Barbra Mateko, who remanded them in custody to September 23.

The pair with two others, went to 8 Dart Road in Vainona, scaled the precast wall, broke down a screen gate and entered the house. The four fired shots at the house owner, but being armed with a 9mm CZ pistol, he was able to shoot back.

The gang retreated, the police were called and the two were arrested.
