In a bold and audacious heist, a group of thieves targeted the Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison Camp, making off with a substantial sum of US$2,500 in cash.


The daring robbery took place in the residence of Superintendent Gloria Tamanikwa, who serves as the Officer-in-Charge at the Chikurubi Female Prison.
