Bail pending trial application for one of the country’s serial armed robber and former Masvingo Central police officer Rudolf Kanhanga alias Tapiwa Munatsi (29) who exchanged gunfire with a police crack team in an attempt to evade arrest with his other accomplices in Beitbridge last year is set for today at the High Court.
The robbers, along with Musa Taj-Abul, were later arrested in dramatic fashion.
Other accomplices were Beitbridge-based police officer Tapiwa Mangoma alias Tapa (27), Liberty Mupamhanga (29), Prince Makodza (31), Godfrey Mupamhanga (27) and Charles Lundu (47) all of Harare.
The gang is linked to a number of armed robberies, including the famous Mashwede case in Harare.
Police swooped on the seven suspected robbers and their police officer host in the Mashavire area, now known as Tshitaudze suburbs in Beitbridge.
High Court Judge, Justice Webster Chinamhora is expected to make a ruling on Kanhanga’s bail pending trial application today.
