Police launch manhunt for police officer who shot and killed his boss in Marondera

Police in Marondera have launched a manhunt for a police officer, Constable Phillip Tichaona Kavhukatema, who shot and killed his boss Sergeant Major James Kazembe at Dombotombo Support Unit Base in Marondera on Saturday morning, before he fled with a loaded AK47 assault rifle.

After being deployed to Agos Farm in Marondera, Kavhukatema did not surrender his weapon and a fully charged magazine to the Troop Quartermaster but instead surrendered one belonging to a colleague on leave left in his care. At about 3:30am on Saturday, Kavhukatema entered a tent where Sergeant Major James Kazembe and other sergeants slept and asked Sergeant Mazinyani where Kazembe was sleeping.  Mazinyani pointed where Kazembe was sleeping and Kavhukatema fired two shots towards his victim with the other shot missing the target.

Mazinyani attempted to disarm Kavhukatema who fired two more shots as he wrested away the gun and fled. Kazembe was taken to Marondera Hospital where he was certified dead on admission. Police are yet to inform the public that there is an armed police officer on the run.
