“We Were Now Sleeping In The Bush”: Fearful Wedza-Based Apostolic Members Feeling Relieved After Ex-CID Jaison Muvevi’s Arrest

Members of the Wedza community, particularly Apostolic Sect members, heaved a huge sigh of relief following the arrest of the notorious ex-CID officer Jaison Muvevi, sometimes referred to as Jaison Muvhevhi.

Muvevi was arrested in Mozambique on Monday morning. He had been on the run since Friday when he shot dead three people, including the top police officer in Wedza.

Apostolic Sect members from Wedza revealed that they had abandoned their homes and had taken to sleeping in the bush out of fear of the killer ex-policeman.

So bad was their fear of the ex-CID officer that the apostolic sect members stopped all movement even during the day. Many stopped going to tend their fields, and some even prevented their children from attending school.

People from Wedza narrated how they had abandoned any movement since the fateful Friday.

Madzibaba Edson Moyo told The Herald,

“We have been living in fear since this horrible incident occurred. People were even afraid of working in their fields or travelling to the business centre, fearing for their lives.

“We are happy that the suspect was arrested. We are relieved, and we now have peace. Everyone in this community is relieved. My wish is for this person not to be given bail. You never know what he will do next once he is given bail. That is the fear and concern of the people around here.”

Madzibaba Silo narrated how community members had taken to sleeping in the bush out of fear.

“Some were even scared to the extent of abandoning their homes and sleeping in the bushes. It was a scary and unfriendly situation. We are glad that he has been arrested,” he said.

“Even going to the shops to buy groceries was not possible; no one wanted to be the next victim. The sight of a stranger was treated with suspicion. We are happy that finally he is accounted for.”

Muvevi launched a reign of terror when he allegedly shot and killed Crispen Mubvana, a Johanne Masowe apostolic sect prophet, at his shrine on Friday.

Muvevi then allegedly shot and killed the Officer-in-Charge of Wedza Police Station and seriously injured another police officer.

Afterwards, he allegedly shot and killed another man at Mukamba Business Centre before driving off and trying to make for Mozambique.

He was finally apprehended in Mozambique on Monday morning after he managed to escape from the police yet again following another shootout on Saturday.
