A Harare man suspected of killing socialite and biker Shingi Mukandi (33) in a hit and run this past weekend has been named, while the vehicle he involved in the fatal crash has been recovered, including key pieces of evidence, sources with the Zimbabwe Republic Police have confirmed to Khuluma Afrika.
Earlier this afternoon, several members of the police, from different units, stormed the Malbereign home of the man, before placing the residence on lock down.
“As we speak, we have units from Vehicle Theft Sqaud, CID Homicide, and members of ZRP Crime Intelligence Unit at Zambezi Flats, where we were looking for the suspect behind the hit and run”, said a police source, who refused to be named.
Another resident, of Zambezi Flats, independently confirmed the heavy police presence at the compound.
“There are maybe 20 or 30 armed police officers, some in dark suits and dark shades. They have just stormed the door but they found the house empty”, the resident narrated.
According to the police source, they managed to recover the vehicle, a white Isuzu, which one witness had described as fleeing the scene after the crash.
