Two Zimbabweans nationals were arrested in South Africa for allegedly stealing fuel worth R3million at a Transnet station in Warden, the Free State Province.

The duo, Owen Muterede (38) and Huggins Nyamutamba (43), were denied bail at the Warden Magistrate court and their trial has been postponed to March 24.

They have been in remand prison since their arrest on December 29, 2019, and could not appear in court as the prosecution failed to get a Shona interpreter.
