Fugitive killer Peter Dube deported from Mozambique

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) says Peter Dube, a suspect in a murder and attempted murder case, has been deported from Mozambique due to possession of fraudulent national identity and passport documents.

Dube had previously been convicted of violating immigration laws in Ireland in 2022. Subsequently, he was deported to Mozambique after falsely claiming to be a citizen of that country.

He had assumed another alias — Armando Quenete Muchanga after he allegedly fraudulently acquired a Mozambican passport.

According to a ZRP statement, a team of detectives will receive Dube at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport this Wednesday, just after 2 PM. Police said:

The ZRP confirms that murder and attempted murder suspect, Peter Dube has been deported from Mozambique because of fake national identity and passport documents. A team of ZRP detectives will receive him at 1405 hours at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport.

Dube was wanted by the ZRP for shooting and killing three people and injuring another in Gweru on 23 April 2021.

Allegations are that on 23 April 2021, Dube, who was a car dealer, shot and killed his second wife, Nyasha Nharingo’s suspected lover Shelton Chinhango – also a car dealer.

Chinhango was shot dead in cold blood while seated in a minibus parked outside a flat in Gweru’s central business district, where Nyasha lived.

After shooting Chinhango, Dube turned the gun on his second wife’s best friend, Gamuchirai Mudungwe, whom he also shot and killed.

Dube allegedly went on to shoot Nyasha and her sister Nyaradzo, and the latter died in hospital.

After the shootings, Dube reportedly fled to South Africa, before relocating to Eswatini, where he changed his identity to Xolile Mtsali.

From Eswatini, he travelled to Ireland, where he sought asylum but was arrested on 14 June after he was exposed by Zimbabwean media.

Dube was arrested at a refugee facility in Dublin, before being convicted by the Dublin District Court for violating that country’s immigration laws.

During his court appearance, Dube allegedly claimed to be a Mozambican and produced his passport as proof of his nationality.
