A HARARE duo was dragged to court to answer to armed robbery charges after being implicated in the US$380 000 ZX Fuels robbery.
Tawanda Gawu and Joseph Makoni appeared before Harare magistrate, Yeukai Dzuda, who remanded them in custody.
Allegations are that on May 4, the duo and their accomplices hatched a plan to rob ZX Fuels.
They allegedly armed themselves with a rifle and went to ZX Fuels offices where they confronted the security guards and fuel attendants.
They allegedly tied them with ropes and proceeded to the offices where they forced open the doors.
Inside the ZX Fuels offices, they blasted the safe and stole cash amounting to US$2 316.
The accused persons further proceeded to the other office where they forced open the door to gain entry.
They smashed the shutter glass, with an unknown object, to gain access into the storeroom.
They used some explosives to remove a small safe, which was mounted on the wall, and stole cash amounting to US$380 000.
The accused persons loaded the safe into a Toyota Wish motor vehicle, which was parked in the yard belonging to the truck driver, Edmore Mumba.
The complainants reported the matter to the police.
On 12 May 2022, the Toyota Wish was recovered in the Epworth area where it was allegedly dumped by the accused persons.
