Robbers kill Chiredzi man after taking US$800



CHIREDZI – Three suspected robbers axed a Chiredzi man after he gave them US$800 and they had ransacked his house of cellphones and laptops at 1am on Monday.
Hillary Bvocho who worked for Chiororo Transport Company as an administrator was axed in front of his wife at his house in Funye Road, Makondo Suburb on Monday.
Masvingo Provincial Police Spokesperson, Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the incident.
The Mirror visited Bvocho’s residence and Ward 5 councillor Philemon Muchaendepi narrated the ordeal.
“ I gather that 3 armed robbers cut the fence and gained access into the yard.
“They forced their way into the sitting room by destroying the door with a machete. Bvocho woke up to investigate the noise that’s when one of the armed robbers slapped him on the face, held him hostage and demanded money.
“The robbers went to the bedroom and one of them held Bvocho’s wife by the throat. Bvocho gave them US$800 and they took all cellphones and a laptop that were in the house and then axed Bvocho on the head,” said Muchaendepi.
The robbers then left and that is when the wife screamed for help.
Police came at around 4am and Bvocho was already dead.
On the fateful night Bvocho had arrived from his church; Divine Yard Ministries where he was treasurer at around 10pm.
