Zimbabwean Man Arrested After Shooting And Killing Two People In South Africa
A 28-year-old Zimbabwean man who was on the run after killing two people in Limpopo Province has been arrested.
Tawanda Simango whose given address was Masisi Village in Limpopo, is accused of shooting and killing two people in the Niani area under the Vhembe district over the weekend.
The Chronicle reports that soon after committing the offence, he fled to Zimbabwe with a mob chasing him until he crossed via the Tshikwalakwala area.
Simango was arrested by the National security Task Force (NTF) and has since appeared before Beitbridge Resident Magistrate Mr Takudzwa Gwazemba on Tuesday.
He has been charged with violating the Immigration, Firearms and Criminal Law Reform and Codification Acts, respectively.
He was remanded in custody to June 5 pending further investigations.
Prosecuting, Mr Pithey Magumula said on May 23 at around 9 AM, Simango illegally crossed into Zimbabwe via the Limpopo River.
He was intercepted by the security agents who noticed that he was being chased by a mob.
Simango was seized and searched resulting in the discovery of one round of live ammunition, an okapi knife, a pair of binoculars and two backpacks loaded with various goods.
The court further heard that during interrogations, Simango indicated he was running away from a mob for murder.
