Cop nabbed over shooting at minister Mpofu's residence

HARARE - A police officer has been arrested in connection with a shooting incident at minister of Macro-Economic Planning and Investment Promotion, Obert Mpofu’s Newlands residence over the weekend.

The officer Llyod Salobe, 29, is being charged with attempted murder after he shot his female colleague who was on guard duty at the residence in the stomach.

The shooting occurred after a dispute between the two, resulting in the female officer being hospitalised because of the injuries she sustained when she was shot.

Police spokesperson Charity Charamba, who is the chief staff officer (press and public relations), confirmed the incident yesterday.

“The ZRP would like to confirm the arrest of a rogue police officer constable Llyod Salobe aged 29, for contravening section 47 of the Criminal Law Codification and Reform Act, Chapter 9.32 of attempted murder.

“The member is facing disciplinary proceedings under the Police Act chapter 11.10. Constable Salobe shot his colleague who was at a point of guard after a misunderstanding,” Charamba said.

According to the police the victim is “a female police officer aged 21, and is presently admitted at Parirenyatwa hospital”.

Charamba said the victim, who went under surgery at the weekend, had a bullet lodged in her large intestines.

“The accused is currently in custody and will appear in court soon. The ZRP will not brook any malcontents within its rank and file. Police will ensure that the law takes its course on this rogue element.”

Earlier reports, however, had suggested the police officers had been injured during a raid at the minister’s home.

Hello! everyone out here,I am James William from Portland Oregon United state.It has been my desire to help people out with their problems no matter how little my contribution may be. As regards to the promise i made to BABA ARUOSA if he could help me get back my girlfriend,i'm using this means to fulfill my promise and also let everybody know there's solution to your problem no matter how difficult you think it is okay. I loved a girl for more than 2 years and she told me she was going to marry me.But she would change her mind and tell me she didn't love me anymore and was seeing a guy,which i found out.I begged her to accept me and also tried every means possible to make her know i can't live without her because i really love her but she would pay deaf ears to me. We were working in the same company and each time i see her,i wish all this weren't happening.This pain continued till a friend of mine led me to BABA ARUOSA whom he told me was very extremely powerful and has helped with a problem. Soon as i contacted him,i knew he was the exact answer to my solution because i felt his powers from his carefully selected words and calmness.I explain all that happened to me and he told me what to do.I did as i was instructed and never doubted him.To my greatest surprise what i felt was almost impossible within the twinkle of an eyes was over. She called me pleading for my forgiveness for how she has treated me and that she loves me so much and will never cheat on me again and will marry me.And from that moment till now all we've been experiencing is happiness in our relationship.We'll be getting married I would advice anyone with problem to contact him via email : for his help.
