Highfield Shoot Out: Wanted Robber, Girlfriend And Nephew Arrested

Kudakwashe Choga who escaped arrest last month following a shoot-out with a police crack team in Harare’s Highfield suburb has been arrested in Chitungwiza.

The wanted suspected armed robber is believed to have been part of a group of criminals operating from South Africa.

During last month’s shoot-out, Choga managed to flee after sustaining injuries but the police continued looking for him until his subsequent arrest in St Marys, Chitungwiza where he was hiding at his girlfriend’s house.

The girlfriend, Esther Kambande (24) and Choga’s nephew, Ashton Chikurune of Manyame Park, Chitungwiza have also been arrested for harbouring a criminal and assisting Choga with medication.

According to police Kambande had been treating the gunshot wounds on Choga who was shot on the thigh and scrotum during the shoot-out.

Chikurune was also alleged to have been harbouring Choga’s accomplices who have since been arrested and are currently in remand prison.

Sources close to the investigations told The Herald that investigations were still in progress.

Choga’s other accomplice, Abel Marufu Mukandawire (40) from Chitungwiza, recently appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Shane Kubonera charged with robbery, rape and aggravated indecent assault.

Mukandawire allegedly raped one of the victims, forced her mother to perform oral sex on him, before defecating in a bucket of maize meal during a robbery in 2019.

Choga and Mukandawire are alleged to have been one of the seven people, other being Francis Hazangure, Blessing Gamanya, Edmore Marwizi Mapuranga and Roy Mutemagazi, who robbed the family of a Mercedes Benz into which they loaded property they had stolen.

They stole cellphones, US$4 110, $700 and other household property which they loaded into the family’s car and drove off.

  1. Eish! Some of our ZRP personnel are doing splended jobs and risking their lives yet some ZRP personnel are busy taking bribes in public and the journalist fraternity are being arrested for exposing all these acts, Wh y, why sure? Is it not upsurd for responsible authorised to pretend to be investigating some government officials taking bribes or abusing their positions when carrying out their duties.
    I never knew that Zacc officials don’t want to be lead to some corrupt activities be ing perpetrated but they ask prospective persons to give them information, surely we suspect for them to forward the culprits, isn’t so
    No matter how good or perfect the law comes out to be, as long as there is no action, it will always be afruitless exercises, What do you think?!
