Giyani- The alleged organised clique of Zimbabwean gangsters who are illegal Immigrants terrorising Giyani communities at night, one suspect has allegedly been killed, and one nabbed in Mnghonghoma village, ka- Dzumeri outside Giyani town.
According to our source, the suspects had left their vehicle in Mnghonghoma village and walked to Loloka village a few kilometres away from where their vehicle was parked when some of the community members suspected the unknown four men, and immediately followed them.
“The suspects, after learning that the community members are following them, they ran for their lives. One suspect was caught at Mnghonghoma village and the angry mob killed him instantly, burning the vehicle beyond recognition and the other one was rescued by police after he was attacked by the mob.
“Meanwhile, the other two suspects disappeared into the nearby bushes and are still at large. Police had informed Mageva and Bambeni village community members to be on the lookout for the two unaccounted for suspects, after one of the two suspects was later spotted wearing a blue jacket between Mageva and Bambeni nearby bushes”, alleged our source.
Another source from Bambeni village claims that the loosed suspect who was then reported to be wearing a blue jacket took off the jacket after realising that members of the communities are after him.
“We saw an unknown man who was running without wearing a shirt, and later we realised that the man was the suspect we were after him and unfortunately he was nowhere to be seen”, concludes our source.
