A HARARE man has been arraigned before the magistrate’s court after he allegedly stole property valued at US$600 belonging to the National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ).

Tatenda Gwekwerere, 33, appeared before magistrate Stanford Mambanje yesterday, where he was charged for being found in unlawful possession of railway equipment. He was remanded in custody and will appear back in court today for his bail application.

The State is alleging that Gwekwerere was arrested by an NRZ employee after he tried to break into the yard. “The circumstances are that on the 9th of May 2023, at around 10:00hrs and in the National Railways of Zimbabwe yard in Harare, the complainant, Bardon Redson, was with his workmate doing some patrolling duties.

“During the patrol, the complainant observed the accused standing suspiciously, leading the complainant to give special attention to him. The accused then made a tendency of collecting some railways property in the yard,” the court heard.

“The complainant then made an ambush and surveillance on the movement of the accused and discovered that the accused would collect property when there is no one nearby but when there are people passing by he would stand as if nothing was happening.” A few minutes later, Redson reportedly noticed that Gwekwerere had broken into the NRZ yard and was stealing some property. The complainant immediately ran to him and found him in possession of the company’s property leading to the accused’s arrest.
