Gweru war vet hands himself over to police over charge of kidnapping farm worker

GWERU – Former Secretary General of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association, Shadreck Makombe who is suspected to have been on the run when Police wanted to question him over the kidnapping and disappearance of a farm worker has handed himself in.
Makombe who had not been seen since July 6, 2018 handed himself over to the Police on Wednesday.
He will appear in court by means of summons.
Two of his farm workers who are suspected accomplices in the kidnap case are still on the run, according to Police sources.
The farm workers who are on the run are Job Ncube and Stewart Chamburuka.
Sources said Police are investigating the kidnap and disappearance of Chaonekwa Ncube, a farm worker in the Worcestershire area. Ncube was kidnapped on suspicion that he had stolen cattle from Makombe and he has not been seen since then.
The suspects in the kidnap case are Makombe and several farm workers.
Ncube’s brother Bradwell Machacha told The Mirror that the family doesn’t know where the victim is since he was taken hostage.
“No one has told us where he is or what happened to him. We are appealing to Police to give us answers. If our relative is dead we just want his body. We are anxious, everyone is anxious and we can’t live with this anxiety. Someone must just tell us the truth,” said Machacha
Six other farm workers have already been charged over the kidnap and these are Prosper Sibanda (23), Zivanai Charles Chimunda (23) Kelvin Sibanda (20), Chamunorwa Phiri (51), Shame Nyambuya (33) and Danau Mufakwadziya
