Taxi Driver Robbed, Abandoned and Finds Refuge at Church Shrine
Robert Mungure, a taxi driver from Kuwadzana Extension, was robbed of his vehicle and money by two unidentified men. The men hired Mungure from Kuwadzana 2 Shopping Centre, claiming they wanted to pick up their wives at Long Chen Mall but instead robbed him at gunpoint. They tied him up before dumping him in an industrial area.
Refuge at a Church Shrine
Mungure managed to untie himself and sought refuge at a nearby Apostolic Church where he spent the night.

According to H-Metro, the police later found his vehicle dumped in Epworth without wheels.
“I thank police as well as the apostolic church members who helped me after telling them what I had gone through,” said Robert.
Trauma and Robbery Details
Robert Mungure charged the robbers US$10, and when they got to the Long Chen main gate, one of the robbers produced a knife and a pistol. The other robber grabbed him from behind and pulled him to the back seat. The armed one pistol-whipped him, tied his hands and legs with shoelaces, and robbed him of his cash and phone.
