Cops in court for beating and robbing US$200 from forex dealer

Two police officers, Prosper Problem Musvanhiri (25) and his colleague Judith Magamu (34) appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Mr Tinashe Tashaya for beating Shooter Ngwenya and stealing his US$200 and $50 Bond Notes. The police officers pleaded not guilty to assault and theft charges and were released on $50 bail each and are set to appear in court on October 10 for trial.

The two police officers allegedly committed the offence last week on Thursday when Government gazetted Statutory Instrument 122A of 2017-Exchange Control (Amendment) Regulations 2017 (No 5), to deal with money changers. The State alleges the two cops approached Ngwenya who was near Chicken Inn along Leopold Takawira Avenue and Fort Street in Bulawayo. Said prosecutor Mr Taurayi Hondoyemoto:

They held him by the waist, lifted him up and threw him to the floor. They continued to press his neck with booted feet and eventually handcuffed him/ While he was still in their custody they forcibly took his US$200 and $50 Bond Notes and led him to the police station.

The two were arrested after Ngwenya made a report against them.
