SIX armed robbers who allegedly shot and killed a popular local businessman - Kumbirai Kumbula - were early on Sunday morning involved in an accident along the Mutare-Masvingo highway as they fled in a stolen vehicle.

The robbers escaped unhurt when they crashed the Honda Fit they had stolen from the businessman near 22 Miles Business Centre a few hours after the robbery.

Manicaland police spokesperson inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa confirmed the accident.

"The car was abandoned at the same spot, they escaped and are still on the run," Kakohwa said.

The six assailants stormed the businessman's Darlington house early on Sunday morning as the occupants were about to finish an all-night prayer. Kakohwa said the robbers went away with an as yet unspecified amount of cash and other valuables, including the unregistered vehicle.
