Farmer stumbles upon arms of war whilst ploughing

Farmer stumbles upon arms of war whilst ploughing. The ammunition was taken to the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) 23 Combat Group in Magunje.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has reported the discovery of arms of war in Hurungwe where a farmer stumbled upon a box containing 507 rounds of a PKM machine gun. Said police in a statement:

On 21/01/21, ZRP Magunje recorded a case of discovery of arms of war at Karenga Village, Chief Dendera, Hurungwe by a farmer (42) who was working on his field with an ox-drawn plough.

507 rounds of a PKM machine gun were unearthed in a rusty box measuring about 30x25x15 cm in size. Meanwhile, the ammunition was taken to ZNA 23 Combat Group Magunje.

In October last year, a Gweru farmer stumbled on a plastic bag with three AK47 assault rifles on a plot on the outskirts of Gweru. The AK47 rifles were rusty, a sign that shows that they had been hidden underground probably for more than 5 years.

While some wondered if the weapons had been hidden during the liberation war, police sources said there was a possibility that the weapons could have been used and abandoned by armed robbers.
