Suspected armed robber in court

HARARE - A suspected robber who reportedly terrorised people he offered transport along Enterprise Road on Christmas Day has been hauled before the courts.

Rodrick Chenjera, 32, of 7 Phillipi Way Sunningdale in Harare appeared before magistrate Tendai Mahwe charged with robbery.

He was remanded in custody to January 16 pending a determination on his bail application.

Chenjera, who was traced using a mobile phone, denied the charges. He told the court that he bought a phone which was stolen during the robbery.

He also said the complainant failed to identify him during a parade although police arrested him for the offence.

Prosecutor Sharon Mashavira alleged that on December 25 last year, Chenjera was driving a Toyota Raum while in the company of two accomplices who are still at large.

The trio were driving along Enterprise Road heading towards town when they offered transport to Libra Zizhou.

When they approached the traffic lights at the corner of Enterprise Road and Glenara Avenue, two of the accused persons produced knives and ordered Zizhou to surrender his belongings.

Zizhou surrendered two Samsung phones and tablets before one of the accused persons who was sitting with him at the back took $27 from his pockets.Chenjera and his accomplices then dropped Zizhou a few metres from the scene and drove off.

A report was made to the police and investigations led to Chenjera’s arrest after being found in possession of one of the Samsung phones.
