POLICE in the Midlands province have recovered property worth more than $42,000 from two notorious Bulawayo armed robbers. Shadreck Chiduza, 49, of O-50 Njube suburb and his accomplice Killias Maphosa, 45, of 122 Nkenyani Road, Mambo in Gweru were arrested two weeks ago and appeared before Gweru Magistrate Chibanda who remanded them in custody to June 20 for trial.
Police yesterday said Chiduza and Abednego Ndlovu, who is currently serving a 17-year sentence for robberies committed in Bulawayo, had led them to recover stolen property worth $42,500.
Chiduza is reported to have committed the robberies while in the company of his son Johannes, 24, who is currently serving a 29-year sentence at Whawha prison for an armed robbery he committed in Bulawayo.
Chiduza’s colleague, Maphosa, was shot by police in Gweru as he attempted to flee from detectives during indications and is currently hospitalised under police guard.
Midlands police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko said property recovered from Chiduza was stolen between 2014 and 2016.
