A notorious armed robber who had terrorised Bulawayo and Harare failed to make it into the New Year after he was gunned down by police detectives during a shoot-out in Harare on New Year’s Eve.

Peace Mutema, also known as ‘Batista’ and his accomplices Clever Nengomasha and Mudzingwa had gone on a robbing spree in December last year targeting mainly Total garages in Harare and Bulawayo.

Police spokesperson Andrew Phiri told the ZBC News how the trio had on December 9 teamed up and robbed a Total garage in Bulawayo, making off with one pistol, $450 and recharge cards worth more than $1 000 and two cell phones.

On December 13, the gang approached one complainant at Pacific Money Transfer and robbed him of $10 000, R5 000, a Toyota Camry and three Samsung mobile phones.

Superintendent Phiri said police detectives tracked the robbers around 2300hrs on New Year’s Eve and engaged in shoot out in Harare’s CBD, which resulted in the death of Mutema.




Spt Phiri encouraged the public to be wary of the two armed robbers who are still at large and to report to any nearest police station giving information which may lead to their arrest.

Meanwhile, police have released the final statistics for the road traffic accidents which occurred during the festive season last year. 1 094 accidents were recorded, claiming 172 lives and injuring 894 others.
