VP Chiwenga says the capturing and killing of the Chivhu gunmen in less than 24 hours should serve as a lesson to all.

“It is a great lesson to everyone in the country that such acts should not be done. Anyone daring to do such evil acts would be accounted for,” he said after visiting one of the injured soldiers at West End Hospital in Harare.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said “Following the tragic shooting of two security service members in a murder, attempted murder and robbery incident at Chicken Inn Police Base, Chivhu, on 5th September 2020 and the subsequent deployment of investigation teams, the security services inform the public that the two suspects have been accounted for after an exchange of fire at Waterbury Farm, Ward 8 Chivhu, off Chivhu-Gutu Road,” said Asst Comm Nyathi.

He said the suspects who were hiding in a mountain observed a security service team approaching and tried to run away.

Asst Comm Nyathi said they hid in a trench and exchanged fire with the security services and in the process one security service member was shot on the leg. “The suspects were then shot and seriously injured.

They were taken to Chivhu Hospital where they were pronounced dead on arrival,” he said.
