FAKE ARTIST WHO EVEN LIVED IN AN IRISH HOTEL. . . At one stage Peter Dube fooled the Irish

H-Metro Reporter

ABOUT 10 months ago, fugitive former Gweru businessman, Peter Dube, was living in an Irish hotel and dreaming of living the remainder of his life in Europe.

It didn’t matter to him that he was on the top list of wanted criminals by Zimbabwean police in connection with three murder cases he allegedly committed in 2021.

Then, one day, it all changed.

He was nabbed by Irish police in June last year and a lengthy process, which would eventually see him land in Harare yesterday to face justice, had begun.

Dube, 37, was living with his family at the Red Cow Moran Hotel in Dublin.

“The male has appeared before the District Court and is currently remanded in custody,” Irish police announced after arresting him.

“As the male is currently before the court, An Garda Síochána (Ireland Police) has no further comment at this time.”

Dube had changed his identity to Xolile Mtsali.

He fled Zimbabwe on the night of April 23, 2021, to South Africa.

He shot and killed Shelton Chinhango, Gamuchirai Mudungwe and Nyaradzo Nharingo at Bensam Flats in Central Gweru.

He also shot his second wife, Nyasha Nharingo, who, however, was lucky to survive. 

His younger brother, Advance Dube, and Justina Nomatter Chawana, Dube’s first wife, witnessed the incident and filed a police report in Gweru.

The matter was being investigated under RRB 4655417.

Since that fateful night, Dube managed, for three years, to evade arrest by changing his identity and seeking asylum in Ireland.

It is believed Dube travelled to Eswatini, where he obtained a new passport, in October 2021.

Zimbabwean police had been in constant touch with Interpol in a bid to arrest and extradite him back to Harare to stand trial.

The Zimbabwean authorities said they notified Interpol through a Red Notice to force his arrest.

Sources close to the investigations revealed that he was also part of a group of criminals, who have been producing fake identity documents in South Africa, for the purposes of seeking asylum in Ireland and the United Kingdom.
