AN armed robber who stole $5 from a motorist after threatening to shoot him will languish in jail after a Harare magistrate slapped him with a 20-year jail term with six years suspended conditionally.

Blessing Moyo appeared before Harare Magistrate Letwin Rwodzi, facing two counts of armed robbery.

According to the State led by Cecilia Mashingaidze, Moyo and an accomplice who is on the run, were offered a ride from  Chitungwiza to Harare by King Kamungeremu.

Moyo’s accomplice, who seated in the front, brandished a pistol at Manyame River bridge and demanded valuables from the driver.

Kamungeremu, who surrendered his wallet containing US$5, was then ordered to drive towards Kabrit Zimbabwe National Army main camp.

However, in a bid to escape the complainant veered into oncoming traffic leading to a collision with another vehicle.

Following the accident, the  complainant appealed for  help and at that moment  Moyo’s accomplice  managed to flee from the accident scene.

However, Moyo remained trapped in the car.

Other motorists came to assist Kamungeremu in apprehending Moyo and handed him over to the police.

A pellet gun used by the robbers was recovered.

FUGITIVE suspected killer Peter Dube, who was a car dealer, will finally face justice in Zimbabwe, after being on the run for nearly three years.

Mozambique extradited him today.

In a statement police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the latest development.

“The ZRP confirms that murder and attempted murder suspect, Peter Dube has been deported from Mozambique because of fake national identity and passport documents. A team of ZRP detectives will receive him at 1405 hours at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport.”

Dube was wanted by the ZRP for fatally shooting three people and injuring another in Gweru in  2021.

He is alleged to have fled to South Africa, before relocating to Eswatini and later to Ireland.

However, luck ran out for Dube on 14 June, after he was arrested and convicted of violating Ireland’s immigration laws.

He was deported to Mozambique after claiming to be a citizen of that country having fraudulently acquired a passport.

The ZRP, through Interpol, then sought Dube’s extradition from Mozambique.

Allegations are that on 23 April 2021, Dube, fatally shot his second wife, Nyasha Nharingo’s suspected lover Shelton Chinhango.

After shooting Chinhango, he then killed his wife’s best friend, Gamuchirai Mudungwe.

Dube allegedly went on to shoot Nyasha and her sister Nyaradzo, and the latter died in hospital.
