Bogus Soldier Dupes Potential Recruits After Masquerading As A Recruiting Agent 

The Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) last week nabbed a bogus soldier for duping potential recruits in Guruve while masquerading as a recruiting agent.

Mkuhuleki Nyathi, 36,  was once a member of the ZNA and was discharged from the force for disciplinary reasons last year, The Herald reports.

In a statement yesterday, ZNA director public relations Colonel Alphios Makotore said:

“A bogus soldier Nyathi Mkuhuleki Munamati (36) was apprehended by members of the ZNA military police at Guruve Centre last week for defrauding potential recruits US$140.

“Nyathi was discharged from the force in 2020.”

Col Makotore said circumstances around the issue were that Nyathi took advantage of a recruitment call by the ZNA in Guruve and  approached the complainants Michael Gunje (23) and Tatenda Chitsiga, both from Guruve, promising to facilitate their enlistment into the ZNA.

He then gave the complainants assurance that they would get the job, citing that he was going to be assisted by a General since he was well connected.

Col Makotore said Nyathi further took the complainants to Harare on the pretext that he was going to introduce them to the said General where he allegedly dumped them near Harare Central Prison along the road leading to Josiah Magama Tongogara Barracks.

He said the matter came to light when the complainants made a report at the Harare District military police department, leading to the arrest of Nyathi.

Col Makotore said Nyathi was handed over to Guruve Police Station. He appeared at Guruve Magistrate Courts last Saturday and was remanded in custody.

He advised members of the public that the ZNA did not engage third parties in its recruitment processes.
