ANTI-HIJACK UPDATE FOR JANUARY 2014
We start a New Year and are always hopeful that situations will improve and it will be better……. It will, if we all pull together and fight the crime out there.
In the last months we have put out a warning on a gang operating around all Harare suburbs who have now be named the ‘ODD COUPLE’ (one black male and one coloured male) and are still at large . These guys are well dressed and well spoken and have robbed many homes with such ease it seems, and so far escaped the hands of the law.
Please still be very alert and on your guard whilst travelling to and from the Airport at all times. An incident of two women on their own ,travelling early in the morning from the Borrowdale side of town, two vehicles posing as police trying to pull them over and stop them and then told that they must get out of their vehicle. Luckily the driver had foresight and refused and a carried on with their journey with windows up and doors locked. This is a very scary scenario and would seem that women or woman on their own, are the target.
There seem to have been an increase on theft from vehicles, mainly due to items being left in full view. Theft from premises, that the gate has either been jammed or left unlocked leaving wide the entry into the yard. This is all in broad daylight. Please be warned and make an effort to ensure your gate is locked at all times … it’s a good habit to get into.
Let’s hope we can all start this New Year off with security in mind, and save the trauma which always follows a hijacking or robbery.
Let’s ALL fight this crime together - stay ALERT and SAFE !
