In an incident that has left city residents shell shocked, a Harare man recently lost RTGS $339 and a cell phone to thigh-vendors who teamed up and robbed him soon after having short -x with one of them.

The Herald reports that on February 21, 2019, James Zawe who was on his way to Mbare, passed by the railway line near Seke flyover, where he was lured by Tendai Ncube (28) to have a short time sexual session for $3 and he agreed.

The duo allegedly indulged in the act at a makeshift place nearby.

After the act, Zawe discovered that his US$105 which was in his pocket was missing and a quarrel ensued.

Ncube reportedly called Shelter Songore (27), Yvonne Chibwana (32) and Beauty Bvumbe (32) to help her.The four, in the company of two accomplices who are still at large, teamed up and also robbed Zawe of his military green satchel, which had RTGS $234 and a cellphone, before escaping.

Zawe phoned the police who attended the scene, leading to the arrest of the four and subsequent recovery of the military green satchel and the mobile phone.

Appearing before Harare magistrate Mr Edwin Marecha,  facing robbery charges, the suspects were remanded out of custody to May 9. The military green satchel and cellphone would be used as exhibits in court.
