Two women, who stand accused of attempting to rob their informal trader friend, have been further remanded to September 5 pending investigations.
Slyvia Chombe, 27, and Reddy Chiadzwa, 33, pleaded not guilty to robbery charges when they appeared before Harare magistrate Milton Serima.
Allegations are that the two accused people, with their accomplice Tapiwa Kawonza who is now late and Leroy who is still at large, hatched a plan to rob Chiadzwa’s friend – Chenaimoyo Bvukura.
The two are out of custody on $100 and will appear in court on September 5 for routine remand.
Chiadzwa is being represented by Takura Kuchenga of Makururu and Partners Legal Practitioners.
State counsel Linda Gadzikwa alleges that on June 28, the accused duo, the late Kawonza and Leroy planned to rob Bvukura who was passing through her friend’s place on her way to the Roadport after her friend insisted that she wanted to place an order.
According to the State Bvukura fell to the trap.
Upon arrival, two male accomplices left the house unnoticed waiting for the complainant.
The two male counterparts confronted the complainant on her way to the bus stop before taking her a Samsung Grand Prime cellphone and R80 000.
However, Kawonza was apprehended and beaten to death by the mob while Leroy is still at large.
