ZB bank robbers convicted
THREE men who were part of the 2021 Chinhoyi highway money heist where ZB bank lost over US$2,7 million, have been convicted.
Shadreck Njowa and his two accomplices, Tendai Zuze and Neverson Mwamuka, were found guilty of staging one of the biggest robberies in the country.
The three were convicted after a full trial, with the State proving that ZB bank employee Njowa was the mastermind of the robbery before roping in his accomplices.
The trio hijacked a cash-in-transit vehicle that was distributing money at various ZB bank branches and got away with US$2,7 million in cash and some more in the local currency.
The trio will be sentenced next week.
Four people who were suspects in the case have been acquitted for lack of evidence linking them to the robbery. — ZBC
