A decision by police to search two men in Bulawayo revealed that they had property stolen in Nyamandlovu and were on the wanted list for attempted murder in Pumula.

The two, Michael Ndlovu (28) of Pumula South and Tawanda Chikwamba (41) of Nkulumane, were found in possession of stolen property during a routine police search in Pumula on Tuesday, according to Bulawayo police provincial spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube.

"On the 5th of October 2021 police intercepted the two accused persons who were carrying property wrapped in black polythene bags.

"The accused persons were searched and found in possession of two silver Cadac solar submissive pumps model Bovem, Model Fortis and two control boxes all valued at US$4 500," said Insp Ncube.

During questioning, the two revealed that they had stolen the property in Nyamandlovu.

"Upon being interrogated the accused persons revealed that they had stolen the property in Nyamandlovu. Police in Nyamandlovu also confirmed that they received a report of theft of the above-mentioned property," said Insp Ncube.

He said upon further investigations, it was discovered that the two were wanted for attempted murder.

"The two accused persons were also checked with our wanted list. It was discovered that they are also wanted in connection with two cases of unlawful entry and theft and one case of attempted murder at ZRP Pumula," said Insp Ncube.

He said the crime prevention strategy by police is bearing fruit.

"The crime prevention strategy and police vigilance led to the apprehension of the accused persons. The arrested accused persons will clear quite a number of cases as they have already been linked to a spate of house break-ins as well as attempted murder," said Insp Ncube.
