Zimbabwe cricketer Brendan Taylor’s wife was mugged outside their home in Harare earlier this week. Taylor took to Twitter to inform about the incident and urging residents of the city to remain alert amid reports of increased crime rates.

Meanwhile, local media has reported an increase in crime in the country since the intensification of load-shedding in Harare this week. Reports said that the criminals are apparently taking advantage of the power failures in the capital city’s suburbs.


Taylor urges citizens to be vigilant

Brendan Taylor posted a series of tweets to inform the news to his countrymen. He also gave detailed information of the incident saying that they ran away just when he came running to catch them.

 

“Just had an alarming situation outside my house,” Taylor wrote. “I was waiting for my wife’s return in my driveway. I started hearing her screaming about 100m from my gate, she was getting mugged by 4 armed men. I ran outside and they sped away in red Honda Fit,” he added.

Brendan Taylor also added that his wife was lucky not to lose too many things, and pointed out the intensity of the grave situation. Taylor also urged his countrymen to be vigilant and keep themselves alarmed as people are getting more desperate these days.

“2) Fortunately she only lost her handbag and it could of been a lot worse. People are getting desperate, be vigilant when entering your property and try keep off the roads after dark. With all this load shedding we’re easy targets,” he wrote in his second tweet.
