Police To Step Up Patrols As Robbers Target NUST Students

The Zimbabwe Republic Police has said that it will be increasing its patrols after noting that robbers are increasing targetting National University of Science and Technology (Nust) students. Bulawayo province deputy police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Abednigo Ncube said

We believe the situation has not reached alarming levels but one robbery case for a student is just one too many and a cause for concern. Imagine if a student loses a laptop with all the data they want to use for their studies. It’s a great loss for the student and the parent so each case is a serious cause for concern.

Some of the mugging or robberies happen because students go to study on campus as groups but as they knock off around 11 PM, they leave as individuals. Some of them will be carrying laptops and even operate their cellphones, thereby attracting robbers. In their rented rooms, they even write on the door that there is a Nust student. Such behaviour can lead criminals to target them.
