MUTARE- A taxi driver here was recently left counting losses
after customers who had hired his services turned on him robbing him of his
car, cellphone and money.

Marshal Kujuva was hired from Dangamvura bus terminus
by two men who wanted to be taken to consult a prophet in Zimunya.

The two unidentified men later on robbed Kujuva of his
Honda Fit car, Itel smartphone and US$92.

Manicaland provincial police spokesperson Inspector
Tavhiringwa Kakohwa
confirmed the incident which occurred last week saying
investigations
were still ongoing.

It
is said that the two men approached Kujuva wanting to be taken to Zimunya from
Dangamvura bus terminus.

One
of the accused persons occupied the front seat while the other sat at the back.

They
used the Mutare -Masvingo
highway
and turned at Zimunya turnoff
where they used the
dust road.

After a few meters from the highway, the taxi driver
was ordered to stop near a bushy area where the suspects said they would
complete the journey to the prophet’s shrine on foot.

The suspects convinced Kujuva to go with them so that
he could also be helped with issues which might be bothering him and the
unsuspecting Kujuva agreed.

Kujuva
and the two suspects
used
a small path into the bush
towards the
purported
prophet’s place and when they were about
50
meters from the vehicle, one of the accused
grabbed the complainant
‘s car
keys while the other
threatened him with a
machete.

The
suspects assaulted Kujuva before tying him up
with
an electric cable whilst a cloth was stuffed into his mouth before disappearing
with his car.

Kujuva
later untied himself and reported
the
matter
at Zimunya police station where officers
attended the scene
but nothing
was recovered.

Inspector Kakohwa urged motorists not to drive to
secluded places and roads with unknown people.
