Zimstar News

Armed robbers pounced on food giant KFC’s offices in Msasa Harare Monday night, blasted a cash safe and made off with over US$50 000 cash.

Police reported the incident via their official Twitter handle Tuesday.

“The ZRP is investigating a case of robbery which occurred on 24/01/22 at about 0001 hours in Msasa, Harare, where six unknown suspects who were armed with an unidentified pistol while covering their faces with balaclava masks, attacked a security guard who was manning KFC premises and took away his Itel cellphone before ransacking the offices,” said the ZRP.

“The suspects broke into an office where they blasted a cash safe and stole cash amounting to US$50 000, ZAR 30 000 and ZWL$19 000. Investigations are currently in progress.”


Armed robberies are now on the increase in Zimbabwe amid signs of being inspired by that a lot of citizens and business entities now prefer to keep cash within their own premises as opposed to taking it to banks.

Zimbabwean depositors still do not trust local banks following their nightmarish experiences of the past years when their US dollar deposits were forcibly converted into local bond notes by authorities against their will.
