Two armed robbers invaded Apostolic Faith Mission Church in Marondera yesterday morning and stole musical instruments after killing a security guard manning the premises. Police in Marondera have since launched a manhunt for the duo.
Sources told NewsDay that a neighbour heard the security guard shouting for help and immediately called the police who found the robbers still in the church premises. The suspects then allegedly dumped the instruments after being cornered by police officers and fled into the dark. Police later found the guard dead with his hands tied together, while a blood-stained brick believed to have been used to hit him and a bolt cutter were recovered from the scene. NewsDay could not get an official statement from Mashonaland East acting provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Tendai Mwanza.
