Beitbridge armed robber dies in hospital after being bashed by members of the public

One of the two suspected armed robbers who were caught in the act and severely assaulted by members of the public in Beitbridge on Wednesday has died.

The now deceased, who was identified as Arnold Mhosva from Chivi, Masvingo Province, reportedly succumbed to the injuries he sustained during the assault.

His alleged accomplice, identified as Hendrik Nyathi (38) of Farm 158 Dewure small-scale farms in Gutu, is admitted at Beitbridge District Hospital.

Mhosva is said to have died on Wednesday soon after admission to the hospital.

The two suspects allegedly lured a Beitbridge resident Nigel Mazvanara to a service station saying they wanted to conduct a foreign currency transaction with him.

They later shot Mazvanara in the leg before robbing him of US$26 000 and trying to get away with his Honda Fit vehicle.

However, Mazvanara fought the suspects and wrestled with one of the two robbers on the steering wheel, resulting in a road accident.

Members of the public then rushed to the scene and meted out instant mob justice on the robbers before handing them to the police.
