Bulawayo trio nabbed for smuggling 121 television sets

Bulawayo trio nabbed for smuggling 121 television sets. The three – Oscar and Pardon Chinanai, as well as Providence Dhaitiya – were arrested in Nkulumane 11 yesterday afternoon.

Three men from Nkulumane suburb in Bulawayo were yesterday arrested after being found in possession of 121 television sets which were smuggled from Botswana. An unnamed resident notified police after spotting the three offloading the smuggled TVs into their home.

The Customs and Exercise Act defines smuggling as any importation or exportation with intent to defraud the State or evade any prohibition, restriction or regulation on the importing or exporting of any goods required to be accounted for under the Act.

Police could not readily give the total value of the recovered television sets but the three accused persons will appear in court in due course facing smuggling charges.

The smuggled smart TVs are a mixture of 25”, 32”, 42” and 70” in size. Officer commanding Nkulumane Police Station Chief Superintendent Sherita Bizeki Nyoka applauded members of the public for helping police with information.

“We received a tip-off at around 12 PM from concerned members of the public concerning smuggled TVs which came through an illegal entry point in Botswana. Our members responded and managed to arrest three accused persons who were found in possession of 121 TV sets in Nkulumane 11,” said Chief Supt Bizeki Nyoka.

She said the three men who could have smuggled the goods for resale were in police custody. “We are yet to establish the total cost of the television sets but we understand that they came through an illegal entry point considering that borders are still closed,” she said.

Chief Supt Bizeki Nyoka said members of the public should continue working hand in hand with police to bring an end to criminal activities in Bulawayo.
