IN a typical movie script that South African comedian, prankster and filmmaker, Leon Schuster of the Mr Bones fame would have loved to borrow and perfect, two kombi drivers in Mutare recently abducted a vicious police dog.

The incident happened after the two were arrested following an accident that had happened at Dangamvura Rank.Laston Nyamusendedza (25) and Christopher Nyadzayo (41) were involved in a accident at Dangamvura Rank and a Zimbabwe Republic Police officer, Constable Beston Mutariri who was on patrol in the Central Business District attended the scene.

He ordered the two to accompany him to Mutare Central Police Station.

The Weekender learnt that one of the vehicles involved in the accident was branded Triple X.

Cst Mutariri whose rank could not be established was accompanied by the fiery looking and vicious police dog named Master No. 1156 which was, as usual, in an uncompromising mood.

In the process, the dog allegedly jumped into the kombi and before Cst Mutariri knew it, the drivers sped off.

However, the kombi drivers' actions backfired after they were arrested for driving away with a police dog as well as defying police orders. Nyamusendedza and Nyadzayo were arraigned before Mutare magistrate, Mr Langton Mukwengi who convicted them.

They were ordered to pay $100 fine each or alternatively serve 60 days as Zimbabwe Prison Correctional Services guests upon failing to pay the fine. Mr Mathew Chimutungo prosecuted.

"On June 9, at around 6.30am, Nyamusendedza and Nyadzayo, the two drivers where involved in an accident at Dangamvura Rank. Cst Mutariri who was on patrol in the CBD in the company of a police dog named Master No. 1156 attended the scene.

"Cst Mutariri ordered the two accused persons to go to Mutare Traffic for further management of their case in the company of Master so that they could not run away.

However, the daring kombi drivers made good their escape with the police dog which was seemingly confused and oblivious of what was happening, perhaps trying to get along with their "new owners".

"When the two failed to return, Mutariri made a police report at Mutare Central Police Station on the same day. The following day, James Sithole, the owner of one of the vehicles, Triple X commuters brought back the dog," added Mr Chimutungo.

Where did the dog spend a night at, only God knows? But the dog was safely returned to the station.

Deputy Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Muzondiwa Clean, said police would not hesitate to arrest offenders who put the law into their own hands.

"We do not condone such behaviour and we will not hesitate to bring to book people who do not observe the law. We urge people to observe rules and laws of the country and always be on the right side of the law," said Asst Insp Clean.
