Notorious armed robber faces fresh charges

Musa Taj Abdul, one of Zimbabwe’s most wanted criminals, has been brought to court to face new charges of robbery.

Abdul, who is currently serving a prison sentence for similar offences, is accused of robbing a man of US$5 800 at gunpoint in Highlands, Harare, in 2019.

He allegedly committed the crime with his accomplice, Charles Lundu, and they used a BMW as their getaway car.

Abdul has a long history of armed robbery and unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition. He is suspected of being behind several heists that spanned over two decades before he was finally arrested in 2020 in Beitbridge along with some of his gang members.
