AN informer, who gave  armed robbers an incorrect address resulting in them attacking the home of former Central Investigations Department (CID) Homicide detective Joseph Nemaisa’s residence in Chadcombe, appeared in court on Saturday facing robbery

The incident last Monday resulted in Nemaisa shooting dead three of the five armed robbers, who had scaled a precast security wall at his Chadcombe residence and tortured his family.

Shine Nyamhunga (21), who is employed by Top Parts and Tyres Company, appeared before Harare magistrate Judith Taruvinga, who remanded him in custody to December 28 pending trial.

He was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.

The State alleges that Nyamhunga was working with the gang.

Former police officer Francis Takura and a soldier, Virimai Nyandoro (37) escaped the shooting, but were later arrested.

They allegedly got away with US$850, a laptop, a mobile phone, and a shotgun.

Nemaisa, who retired after 19 years of service to take up a career as a lawyer, was not home.

He arrived within minutes after getting a call from his son and took on the balaclava-clad gang, shooting three dead, including two soldiers.
