Gambakwe Media Sources have revealed that a Bulawayo Forex dealer, Admire Madhakwa Mapako, was last night killed by a heavily armed gang from the Zimbabwe Military, who broke into his home.
Armed with AK47s and wearing balaclavas, the gang got away with USD 30 000.
Here are some of the recent armed robberies carried out by the same gang.
05 March – Admire Madhakwa Mapako – USD 30 000 Shot Dead

In this particular robbery, Chamunorwa Geoffrey Genje, 24, who is stationed at 21 Infantry Battalion but is currently attached to the Msasa Base Workshop in Harare was charged with armed robbery when he appeared before Harare magistrate Learnmore Mapiye.
It is clear that there are a number of private and state actors in the robbery game.
Forex Dealers are now in danger either through a military operation from the Zimbabwe Military or as part of Rouge soldiers operating these armed robberies.
If you are a forex dealer you are in danger. Live in SA.
