Machete-Wielding Gangs popularly known as MaShurugwi hacked a total of 105 people to death since August 2019, Health Times reports.
This was revealed in a statement by Heal Zimbabwe Trust which expressed concern over the increasing number of deaths:
Reports on machete violence shows that at least 105 people have been hacked to death in machete gang violence between August and October 2019 yet the violence continues escalating.
The ongoing killings come against a backdrop where there has not been adequate response by law enforcement agents.
Heal Zimbabwe expresses concern that although the police have only issued warnings against machete killings and conduct investigations, machete gang killings and embarrassments remain rampant across the country.
MaShurugwi have headlined for the wrong reasons these past three weeks but mostly for killing a police officer in Battlefields and a gold buyer in Mvuma.
