2 ZRP Officers 'Kelvin Nyabanga and Learnmore Mutaurwa ' Up For Extortion!

Gold dealers lose US$27 000 and 105 grams of gold to bogus police. Provincial police spokesperson Inspector Milton Mundembe said the incident happened on February 28 at around 11.30am. Two gold dealers in Bindura lost US$21 000 cash and 105 grammes of gold to three robbers masquerading as police officers.

Insp Mundembe said the complainant, Ngonidzashe Gutsa (23) arrived from Harare at around 10.30am and parked his vehicle inside his yard. He then handed over US$5 000 to Godfrey Mutariyana (34) who gave him 105 grammes of smelted gold from previous sales.

Gutsa then hid US$10 000 and the gold under the front passenger seat and locked the vehicle. He instructed Ashton Chirikure to clean the outside of the vehicle only as he went inside the house to rest.

Mutariyana added the US$5 000 to the US$6 900 from the previous day and hid the money under the passenger seat of his car which was also parked in the yard.

At around 11.30am, one of the suspects who was clad in riot gear entered the yard and approached Chirikure looking for Gutsa. He was directed to Mutariyana who was resting in his car. As Mutariyana went inside to wake Gutsa up, the suspect followed.
