A 22 year old man from Mawane area in Gwanda has been arrested by police after being found in possession of a human head and male private parts in a suspected case of ritual murder.

Honest Moyo was arrested on Thursday by police in Guyu following a tip off by villagers from Mawane area under Chief Nhlamba.

Moyo led Criminal Investigation Department officers to the crime scene near the Collen Bawn dumpsite this Friday (today) where the body of a man which was in a state of decomposition was exhumed.

In explaining his motive Moyo said he had met one Cosmas Zhou from Chiredzi at a Collen bar who promised him US$25 000 for the body parts.

Moyo who was employed at Capitol Block Ranch in Collen Bawn, claims that he did not murder the vagrant whose body was exhumed but beheaded him and chopped off his private parts after discovering his dead body near the dumpsite while herding cattle.

Moyo said he then buried the remains of the victim in a shallow grave before stuffing the human head and private parts in a satchel and headed to his rural home.

He shaved the head allegedly to slow decomposition as he awaited to deliver the body parts.

Sources close to the investigations said an SMS to an unknown person in South Africa was sent by the suspect informing the recipient that “the meat was now ready” which is suspected to have been confirmation that the body parts had been found.

National police spokesperson, Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident.

A fraudster has been arrested after he swiped for groceries worth more than $398 000 at OK Supermarket in Hwange using a bank card that had been tampered with.

The man, Brian Pedzisa of Chitungwiza, was arrested on Thursday and is suspected to be among a gang of people who have been using cloned cards and other bank card related tactics to con various retail shops across the country.

Detectives on Thursday pounced on Pedzisa at the supermarket, moments after he was about to get out after swiping for groceries worth $396 384.

Matabeleland North provincial police spokesperson Inspector Glory Banda confirmed the incident and said police were now looking for two other people linked to the sca

“On 10 June 2021 a gang of three fraudsters tried to defraud OK Hwange Supermarket of groceries worth $396 384.

One of the fraudsters successfully used an electronic Visa card to make purchases but before he could make off he was arrested by a team of watchful detectives who were working on a tip-off. Upon being interviewed the suspect revealed that he was working with two other accomplices who are still at large,” said Insp Banda.

He said the gang had used the same strategy to defraud OK Mart Victoria Falls of an undisclosed amount in groceries. He appealed to members of the public to assist with information leading to their arrest.

“The two accomplices are on the run anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of these two criminals can report at the nearest police station,” said Insp Banda.

He called on shop owners to enhance security to avoid such incidents which were on the rise in the country.

“As police we would like to implore shop owners to enhance security at their premises through use of alarm systems and Closed Circuit Television. Retailers should examine electronic cards and do necessary verifications before processing of electronic transactions. For the record some fraudsters misrepresent themselves as humanitarian workers.”

According to sources privy to the incident, the gang would approach the supermarkets seeking a quotation for groceries pretending that the transaction wanted would be effected from a nostro account. Later one of the gang members would return to make purchases using a Visa card whose microchip would have been tampered with. Sunday News
