The famed Mashurugwi are said to have killed eight people in Glendale two months ago and now residents are protesting against the police’s failure to take appropriate action.
Yesterday, the Minister of Energy and Power Development, Fortune Chasi said that people in Glendale held a meeting in which they blasted the police for their failure to take Mashurugwi to book.
The Minister also said that the machete wielding miners have killed up to 8 innocent citizens in Glendale for the past two months. The notorious gang who invaded Glendale for slightly over two months are believed to be carrying out a reign of terror in all the mining towns.
“MaShurugwi have taken over Glendale and 8 people have been killed over the last 2 months. Residents protested against the police for failing to protect the citizens…” said Chasi.
The residents of Glendale bemoan the loss of their freedom in a peaceful community they once lived in which is now becoming a terrorist land with the machete wielding miners taking control over the community.
The call to arrest Mashurugwi has been popular in the country with some members of the central intelligent office putting the Zimbabwe Republic Police to the task, whilst shunning the existence of machete wielding miners as these would lead to the formation of a terror group like the Boko Haram.
Zimbabwe Miners Federation has since distanced itself from the so called Mashurugwi and they even called on the police to take action against these miners whom they would not identify as miners but robbers.
Ever since the Mashurugwi became popular, no raids or imperative operations have been carried out by the police. The populace is now of the view that the Mashurugwi are politically connected.
