Bogus soldiers fleece 26 cattle from desparate land seekers

ZANU PF Mazowe District Coordinating Committee (DCC) came to the rescue of twenty-six land seekers in Mazowe who were duped cattle and money by two bogus soldiers last week.

Dzingai Chipara (47) and Nyembesi Tirivayi(59) were arraigned before Guruve magistrate  Rumbidzai Mugwagwa this Friday where they were remanded in custody to June 14

The state led by Albert Charehwa alleged that from November 2018, the duo swindled money and 26 beasts from desparate land seekers by parcelling out land illegally.

They misrepresented themselves to the land seekers that they were soldiers and would facilitate land through the ministry of agriculture.

The desparate land seekers approached DCC leadership after they were informed by lands officials that they had acquired the land illegally

The DCC acted swiftly and facilitated the arrest of the duo.
