A petrol attendant is in critical condition after being shot in the chest during an armed robbery at a Flo Garage in Tshabalala, Bulawayo.

According to multiple reports, the unnamed fuel attendant was rushed to hospital while robbers escaped with cash.

However, the police and garage owners are yet to reveal the exact figures.

Bulawayo has been heavily under attacks by armed robbers for the past few months.

This incident comes a week after Choppies branches lost 7 trunks of cash when armed robbers attacked a vehicle carrying the money from different branches of the retail outlet.
