A TAXI driver has vanished along with his employer’s vehicle and cash. Blessing Mubvuma, 34, a taxi driver employed by Gift Guti, was last seen on January 29.
His family claims to be in the dark about his whereabouts as well. Guti reported Mubvuma to the Waterfalls Police Station under CR 86/02/23.
“Blessing had been cashing every day since the beginning of January,” Guti explained.
“His family claims he was last seen on January 29, but I believe he sold my vehicle.”
“His wife is a police officer who has never expressed concern about his disappearance.”
“Instead, the wife decided to replace my vehicle with hers and never thought of reporting her missing husband.
“I strongly suspect that they are partners in crime.
“She volunteered to lead us to Chegutu, a place where she said was his destination when he left home.
“We checked, together with his wife, at all police stations to see if he was involved in any accident.
“I am appealing for help because I smell a rat and strongly suspect that the wife and Blessing are together in robbing me of my vehicle.
“His wife last promised me that she was going to flag the vehicle and I didn’t understand what it meant.
“She later changed her decision to replace the vehicle after I asked if it was clean and with a registration book.”
Constable Enviolatta Nyamande, based at Harare Central Police Station, accompanied Guti to Chegutu.
Cst Nyamande was quizzed by Guti as to why she didn’t lodge a missing person report and accused her of compromising the case.
Cst Nyamande confirmed her trip to Chegutu in the company of Guti, and his wife, to look for Blessing.
“The couple has become a nuisance because I am not the one who disappeared with their vehicle,” said Cst Nyamande.
“Yes, Blessing is my husband and is employed by Guti but as for his whereabouts I am not aware.”
