PRETORIA – The South African Police Service (SAPS) in Western Cape on Friday said they were probing the murder of Zimbabwean trained journalist Mike Chimombe, who was based in Cape Town.
At the time of his death, the Harare Polytechnic media school graduate was not attached to any media house in South Africa and was believed to have been working as a cab driver.
“On Sunday at 20:10 a man, who is believed to be a taxi driver, was shot and killed in Tsaris Street, in Delft [Cape Town] by an unknown suspect who is yet to be arrested. His body was discovered next to his Toyota Corolla,” Western Cape provincial police spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut, told African News Agency.
“The circumstances surrounding the incident are being investigated. The motive is unknown, however robbery is not ruled out,” said Traut.
Chimombe (37), was reportedly the first son of Zimbabwean veteran journalist Emilia Zindi who is now into farming.
Media in Zimbabwe reported that Chimombe had plans to move back to his home country later this year.
