Police discover human head in Kutama

HARARE - The Zimbabwe Republic Police are appealing for information leading to the identification of a human head that was discovered in Kutama on Christmas Day.

In a statement issued yesterday, Police spokesperson Paul Nyathi said the human head was found on a dust road in Mabvure-Masiyarwa.

“Police are also appealing to the public to assist with information which may lead to the identification and establish leads in a case where a human head comprising right cheek, half chin, right eye, full nose, right upper, lower jaw and protruding tongue was found lying at the centre of Mabvure-Masiyarwa dust road in Kutama on December 25, 2014,” he said.

Nyathi also said police had arrested a serial robber who stole from Agribank Machipisa and Power Sales in Chinhoyi.

Shanganani Ndlovu, 32, was involved in a robbery case at Agribank Machipisa, Kezi with his colleagues Gift Moyo alias Thando, 30,  (currently serving a 12-year sentence at Khami Prison) and Leavender Moyo who is still at large.

“This occurred on September 2, 2014 when robbers attacked the bank and got away with 45 000 Rands and $3 200.

“On December 24, 2014 at 0200 hours Ndlovu teamed up with Leavender and broke into Power Sales Chinhoyi. They stole cash amounting to $4 145,” Nyathi said.

Meanwhile, 4 people died in road accidents on Boxing Day raising the festive season death toll to a disturbing 78 up from 69 recorded in 2013 during the same period.

The latest statistics from the police reveal that on Boxing Day alone, there were 47 accidents and 27 injured people compared to 42 injured people and 28 accidents on the same day last year.

The accidents, which police blame on poor driving and miscalculation by some motorists before overtaking, have raised fears that this could turn out to be the bloodiest Christmas in years.

The number of injured people from this festive season stands at 535 compared to 345 recorded last year. In total, the accidents which have occurred are 963, an increase from 766 from the corresponding period last year.

Police have so far this festive season issued out 89 656 tickets for various traffic offences of which 6 371 were issued out on Boxing Day.

Nyathi urged motorists to continue exercising caution on the roads.

“The ZRP encourages drivers and all travellers to continue exercising caution on the roads and prevent accidents,” Nyathi said.

Some countries have advanced tremendously and have forensic labs that assist police in solving crimes. In this case the police have to rely on heresay, what a sorry situation.

Some sixteen years or so have since passed when one Faber Chidarikire was found with a human head in his vehicle boot. Perhaps he might be of assistance in this matter.

Yah they can check with him. But how did he get away with it, picking a head and put it into his boot and just get away with it as if he had picked a goat head.
