Notorious Thief ELECTROCUTED Attempting To Steal Chickens

A notorious thief from Gweru who had been the scourge of his neighbourhood met his demise after he was electrocuted to death while attempting to steal some chickens.

Clayton Machoba (21), a known serial thief who specialised in stealing chickens, was discovered died next to an electrified fowl run in Mkoba 5 Gweru. A plastic bag containing a live chicken was discovered next to his body.

ZRP spokesperson for Midlands Province, Inspector Joel Goko told H-Metro,

I confirm that one Clayton Machoba was found dead on loth February at around o600hrs in Mkoba 5 by Lisa and Lovejoy Jujuru, they saw a plastic bag which contained a chicken and the body of the now deceased leaning against the fowl run with pliers in his right hand.

It is suspected that he died due to electric shock because the foul run has an electric wire connected to the main house. According to people who live in the same neighbourhood with the now deceased, the deceased was in the habit of stealing chickens in his neighbourhood and at one point it is said they warned him against stealing.

As ZRP we urge members of the public to desist from stealing or committing any form of crime because crime does not pay.

Police investigations are underway and the body of the deceased was taken for post-mortem.
