10 man gang of Police, CIO and Military Intelligence officers rob fellow soldier
A 10 man gang comprising of Police, CIO and Military Intelligence officers has been charged with armed robbery after raiding a Mbare based shebeen.
The team was deployed in Harare suburbs during last month’s #ShutdownZimbabwe violent skirmishes.
The first of the 10, Sergeant Wellington Mushosho of the Police’s Internal Security Intelligence (PISI), appeared in a Harare court on Monday and was remanded in custody to February 25.
Nine others, made up of Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) spies, police officers and Military Intelligence (MI) agents, were arrested on Monday and are due in court on Tuesday.
The gang allegedly raided a shebeen on Mangende Street in Mbare, wearing masks and all armed with AK47 rifles.
Prosecutors say patrons in the shebeen were ordered to lie on the ground and many were kicked and whipped with sjamboks, during which a shot was fired in the ground.
They robbed the shebeen owner 42-year-old Norah Kandawasvika, of $2,800 bond notes and $100.
The men jumped into their vehicles and sped off.
Zimlive reports that the Nissan vehicles are owned by the Central Intelligence Organisation.
Mushosho told investigators they were under orders to “harass MDC members”, but unbeknown to the men, Kandawasvika’s husband, David Kandawasvika, is a soldier with the 1 Commando Battalion and he arrived minutes after the raiders left.
Security forces deployed in residential areas have been accused of crimes including ra_pe, murders, beatings and abductions.
