Fugitive ex-Cop Arrested in Mozambique

Jaison Muvhevhi, a wanted ex-Criminal Investigations Department (CID) officer who shot three people dead in Wedza last week, ran out of luck this morning after crossing the Zimbabwean border, when he was apprehended by Mozambican police working with their Zimbabwean counterparts.

Muvhevhi shot and killed an apostolic sect leader before his congregants, Wedza Police Station Officer-in-Charge, Inspector Maxwell Hove and a male bartender. He is also reported to have seriously injured another police officer.

He was however caught this morning in Manica Province after crossing the porous border with Mozambique.

It is reported that efforts are underway to bring him back into the country to face justice.

Meanwhile the Wedza community remains in shock after witnessing chilling scenes of cold blood murder.

Human Rights and development advocacy group, the Wedza Residents Development Initiative Trust (WERDIT) has expressed shock over the shootings and called for peaceful resolutions to conflicts.
