Two armed robbers have been arrested for stealing pregnant carbon worth over US$6,000 from a mine in Chegutu. Takudzwa Kadzingwindi (26) and Tafadzwa Chiteya (27) were brought before the Kadoma Magistrate’s Court, facing charges of robbery.

Violent Assault and Theft

The court heard that on June 5th, Kadzingwindi, Chiteya, and three accomplices who are still at large, armed with two pistols, arrived at Lyton Mine. They confronted Tawanda Tirivangani, who was on duty, and manhandled him.
