RESIDENTS of Thohoyandou in Limpopo, South Africa, have been forewarned around two Zimbabwean men who they say are dangerous and hazardous to the neighborhood.

A picture of two men has been flowing through online media with many South Africans and indeed some Zimbabweans acknowledging that they had been victims to the pair’s violent robbery tactics.

The pair is believed to have held several people around Thohoyandou at knifepoint and many say they now fear for their lives.

“They approach you nicely, then next thing they threaten to kill them you unless you give them cash and other valuables like cellphones,” said one lady who professed to have been a victim once.

She also said she knows a neighbour who was also once cornered by the pair and had her breast stabbed when it turned out she had no cash on her.

“It happened to her while she passing the section at Thavhani Mall. Because of fear she had no genuine choice but to give them all the money she had on her wallet including her cell phone, but they were not satisfied with the amount and the type of cell phone. That’s when they stabbed her for going around with no money.”

Another man, who claimed to be a Zimbabwean national living in South Africa, said: “These are my countryfolks but to be honest, people in Thohoyandou are right now living in fear pondering what could come to pass for them when going to retail plazas.

“We as of now fear going to public spots since the emergence of this notorious pair. One speaks Shona and the other appears to be from the southern parts of Zimbabwe where Ndebele is popular.”

A crime watch group on Facebook also alerted locals in the area of the notorious pair.

“People have been urged to run for their lives if anytime they meet these men. They are dangerous and spooky. Please report them to the police and they must be arrested on sight. We have so many of their victims around here,” said the group.
