A Mukuru money transfer agent in Chegutu yesterday lost US$17,000 cash to armed robbers who are yet to be apprehended.

The cash issuing outlet housed at Zapalala Wholesale in the Mashonaland West town was Friday morning besieged by armed robbers who fled away in a getaway vehicle.

Mashonaland West acting provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Ian Kohwera confirmed the incident but would not give the details.

The unidentified men forced workers to lie on the ground after firing two shots in the air before vanishing in a getaway car.

Incidents of armed robberies have been on the rise of late, with businesses and individuals losing huge sums of cash and valuables to the robbers.
