Zimbabwe police on Wednesday afternoon gunned down four suspected armed robbers in the Matabeleland South capital, Gwanda.
In a tweet, police said, “The suspects had robbed the complainant of a vehicle in Gwanda CBD (central business district) at around 1000 hours. More details to be released in due course.”
The country has of late recorded several incidents of armed robberies in Harare, Bulawayo and other cities and towns.
A few days ago, armed robbers got away with US$13,000 and three vehicles in Mvuma and Mberengwa. The suspects were arrested in Masvingo.
Some members of the Zimbabwe National Army and police have been linked to some armed robbery cases. At least two soldiers have been discharged from the army after they were linked to at least three robberies.
