The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has started investigations into the case in which an unidentified woman was assaulted by a mob that accused her of wrecking marriages in Hatcliffe Extension in Harare.


Police have confirmed that the woman is alive but reportedly nursing injuries she sustained.


Police said they are keen to interview some of the suspects who are appearing in the viral video.


National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said investigations are still in progress.


“The ZRP has taken note of a video circulating on social media involving a female victim who was being assaulted by five female suspects after being accused of having an affair with a married man in Hatcliffe Extension, Harare. The case is now under investigation, and the police have since arrested Mitchel Kariwo aged 18, in connection with this case.


Police are appealing for information that may lead to the arrest of Zeripah Kanduza, Natasha Kanduza, Fortunate Tembo, and another suspect only identified as Olleen who are sought in connection with this case.


“The victim sustained some injuries as a result of the assault and she was referred to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospital where

she is receiving treatment. ZRP refutes news circulating on social media on the death of the victim,” Nyathi said.


Meanwhile, Police in Mabvuku are investigating a case of robbery which occurred at a service station in Eastview on 7 February 2024, in which six unidentified male suspects who were armed with firearms and wearing face masks, attacked a security guard who was on duty and a motorist who was fuelling his vehicle before stealing US$20.00.


The suspects gained entry into the service station offices where they broke a safe using explosives and stole US$9 670.00 cash. The suspects then proceeded to a nearby lodge and attacked a security guard before stealing US$50.00 and an Itel cell phone.


Anyone with information is advised to report at any nearest Police Station.
