Mob Assault Child Kidnapper Caught In The Act In Mutare

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is investigating a case of kidnapping that happened in Dangamvura where a suspected child kidnapper was assaulted by members of the public after being caught in the act.

The police issued a statement warning members of the public against discharging justice on suspected law offenders. Said police in a statement:

_Police in Mutare are investigating a case of kidnapping, where a woman approximately 30 years old, snatched a minor (2) today in Dangamvura._

_The suspect, who was clad in apostolic white garments, was noticed by an alert neighbour whilst walking away with the baby before she was attacked by members of the public. Meanwhile, the ZRP warns members of the public against meting instant justice._
Cases of child kidnapping and subsequent murder for suspected ritual purposes have been on the rise in Zimbabwe lately.
Last year, the nation was shocked after a seven-year-old Murehwa boy, Tapiwa Makore was murdered for suspected ritual purposes.
Tapiwa’s remains were eventually buried in March with some body parts still missing.
Another case is on two seven-year-old siblings who were found dead in Nyanga after they went missing after lessons at Saint Robert Mbaza Primary school.
Their bodies were found a day later with deep cuts on the necks and their uniforms were blood-stained but all their body parts were intact.
