Border Police recover stolen cattle in Mozambique


MASVINGO-The Police in the Sango Border Post area in Chikombedzi between Zimbabwe and Mozambique have successfully recovered herds of cattle stolen from Zimbabwe across the border recently.

The latest herd of 10 cattle to be recovered belong to Rasmos Ndlovu who on the 10th of October 2023, around 8am, in Samu Village under Chief Sengwe, left his cattle to graze.

At around 4pm, he instructed his children to go and bring the heard and out of the 20, 10 were missing.

They tracked where the prints went and realized they were going deep into Mozambique which they reported as soon as possible to Sango Border Post ZRP who started patrols with the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA).

Two days later on the 12th of October they got information that the cattle were not out of the country yet and they contacted their Mozambican counterparts and subsequently on the 13th of October they found new prints near Madhambalala around 5am and the police intercepted the three suspects with the stolen cattle but they ran away and disappeared into the thicket of the forests leaving the cattle which were repatriated back to Zimbabwe.

“The cattle were branded and it helped in identifying that they were from Zimbabwe the report was also made early so we encourage the community to report early whenever crimes have been committed,” said Masvingo Province ZRP spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa.
