Good Friday Robbery OF US$18K From Epworth Clinic, School

Robbers struck fear into the hearts of Epworth’s community on Good Friday, targeting both the Epworth Mission Clinic and the adjacent Epworth Methodist Academy School, vanishing into the night with a staggering sum of US$18,000.

At the forefront of this brazen act was Takawira Mutamburiri (49), the valiant security guard of the premises. It was reported that Takawira was confronted by four shadowy figures clad in balaclavas, armed menacingly with iron bars. Overwhelmed, Takawira fell victim to their aggression as they bound his hands and feet with shoelaces, rifled through his belongings, and callously relieved him of his Itel cellphone and a paltry sum of US$25.

With their entry secured, the marauders breached the sanctity of the clinic, shattering the screen door with their crude implements. Inside, they left chaos in their wake, ransacking rooms until they unearthed an unlocked safe containing US$5000 in cash, which they promptly seized.

Undeterred by their initial success, the perpetrators then set their sights on the Epworth Methodist Academy School. Employing brute force, they pried open the doors to both the administration offices and the headmaster’s domain. No corner was spared their scrutiny as they combed through the premises, eventually discovering a safe nestled within the headmaster’s quarters. Their plunder proved lucrative as they absconded with a staggering sum of US$13,000.

Harare provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luckmore Chakanza, confirmed the unsettling turn of events. “Police are actively investigating two robbery incidents, one at the clinic and the other at the school in Epworth,” remarked Inspector Chakanza. “Upon the scene examination, a grinding blade was recovered, and the total value of the stolen goods stands at US$18,000.”
