Armed Robbers Attack Bakery Vehicle, Steal 500 Loaves Of Bread

Due to the scarcity of bread, leading to its high prices in Zimbabwe, a gang of armed robbers stole 500 loaves of bread during a delivery at a bakery in Zimbabwe on Monday, June 24. The bread is valued at roughly $7,800 Zimbabwean dollars.

According to The Chronicle of Zimbabwe, a crew from Lobel’s Bakery was making deliveries at Speciman Shopping Centre in Harare’s Glen Norah suburb when the incident happened.
An unmarked vehicle reportedly suddenly pulled up in front of their van. Armed with pistols, the gang accosted the crew, which, in turn, tried to put up a fight but was overpowered.
Zimbabwe Republic Police national spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, has however said investigations were in progress.
Bread is currently very scarce in that country and is reportedly fetching high prices on the informal market, IOL reported.
Tafadzwa Musarara, the head of the Miller’s Association, reportedly said last week that $7m had been released by the central bank to import wheat stored in Beira.
He reportedly said this would be enough to last the country for just over two weeks.
