Last week a gang of 8 machete-wielding members robbed 3 different business centres in Lupane and left with an undisclosed amount of cash, The Chronicle reports.
The gang robbed people from Matshakayila, Maphanabomvu and Dandanda business centres where they left people seriously injured and left with valuable goods and cash.
Matabeleland North Police spokesperson said they were yet to receive the report but a source that spoke to the publication said:
The amount of money and groceries taken could not be ascertained as the victims were unable to talk due to serious injuries sustained during the robbery,” said the source who revealed that the victims are admitted to St Luke’s Hospital in Lupane.
The gang broke into a shop at Matshakayila Business Centre and assaulted the owner of the shop Mr Princess Nyathi leaving him with a fractured leg and multiple injuries all over the body. They took some money and groceries. After failing to break into nearby shops, they then pounced at Matshakayila veterinary sub-office where they assaulted the vet officer and tied him to a tree.
He also suffered multiple injuries while the gang broke a money safe and fled with an unconfirmed amount. Both victims are unable to talk hence the total value of money and groceries taken could not be ascertained, they are both admitted at St Luke’s Hospital
