He said Ncube was traveling from Nyika to Harare when he boarded a vehicle with five male occupants at Croco Motors in Masvingo. Shortly after passing Fairfields, one of the passengers produced a knife and demanded Ncube’s cell phone, which he surrendered. Another passenger brandished a pistol and demanded Ncube’s traveling bag, which contained $21,900 in cash.

The robbers then pushed Ncube out of the vehicle near Chicken Slice in Mvuma after slowing down. The police are currently seeking any information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects.
