Police are investigating two separate cases involving theft of motor vehicles which occurred in Gweru Central Business District (CBD) and Zvishavane on June 01 2024.

Midlands Provincial Police Spokesperson, Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko confirmed the two incidents and warned people against leaving valuables unattended.
