The couple appeared before Chinhoyi magistrate facing charges of contravening the Firearms Act pertaining to “ purchasing firearms or ammunition without firearm certificate”
According to iHarare, it is in the States case that on the 16th of March 2021, detectives from CID Masvingo got a tip-off that Clive was wanted by CID Mwenezi in connection with a case of guns smuggling through the Sango Border Post.
This was after the other suspects, Sango Border Post principal immigration officer Wilbert Muneri (36) and Kennedy Ainos Mutanhaurwa (31) were arrested for trying to sneak out firearms.
During interrogation, Muneri confessed they were taking the guns to Mozambique before implicating Clive.
On the same date, detectives from CID Chinhoyi arrested Clive before escorting him to his house in Hunyani Infill, Chinhoyi to repossess a CZ service pistol in his possession.
Kadambure failed to locate the pistol prompting him to call his wife inquiring on the whereabouts of the CZ service pistol.
Shyness who had allegedly concealed the CZ pistol in the family garden gave directions to the spot she had hidden the pistol.
Further searches by the detectives in the vegetable garden led to the discovery of 58x.375 Hornady Ruger ammunition buried underground leading to the arrest of Shyness, a teacher at Alaska Primary School.
Muneri and Mutanhaurwa were remanded in custody to 31 March, while Kadambure and his wife were remanded in custody to 6 April.
Meanwhile, Kadambure and his wife have since lodged an appeal for bail contesting unlawful arrest.
