Christabel Shumba

Tawanda Chitando aged 23, Shadreck Kudakwashe Diza aged 45, Mark Taweni aged 39
and William Banda aged 26 and two other accomplices were recently arrested on allegations
of stealing aluminum cables.
Allegations are
that Diza and Taweni went to a house at Council Park in Zvishavane and stole
810kg of aluminium cables belonging to Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority
They loaded the
loot onto a Toyota Raider and the car was then driven towards Masvingo where it
was caught at a police roadblock.
Police officers
demanded confirmation papers of possession after the accused claimed they had
bought the cables from Kenstra Engineering Company in Harare.
The accused
persons failed to produce purchase receipts which led to their arrest. The
other two accomplices William Banda (26) and Tafadzwa Chitando (23) were also
arrested for assisting to load the stolen cables into the truck.
The cables, which
were later identified by Zesa employees, were valued at $8100 and were all
recovered. Their case came before Zvishavane magistrate Archie Wochiwunga and
was postponed to September 17
