According to eye witnesses, Jonathan Mugari (27), the assistant bursar at Nashville High School, was receipting examination fees from parents and guardians queuing to pay.
“We were shocked to then see two men who were with us in the queue pulling a gun each and ordering everyone to lie down,” a parent who refused to be named told The Zimbabwean.
According to the school authorities, the suspects took $4,805 from the cash box, three cell phones from parents and a $100 note. They then forced Mugari to the bursar’s office where they again took $3,157 in cash.
The school truck pulled in from purchasing groceries and the driver was threatened with death and forced to surrender the keys. The robbers then drove off in the truck – a blue Mazda B1800, registration number AAK 1639. Police confirmed the incident and said investigations were underway.Post published in: News
