A HARARE man was held captive for two hours by a fellow motorist following a dispute over right of way recently.

Gerald Dhlamini also lost $400 in cash to David Chamunorwa who robbed him at gun point after kidnapping him from the scene of dispute.

Chamunorwa appeared before magistrate Gideon Ruvetsa answering to kidnapping, assault and armed robbery charges.

He was ordered to apply for bail at the High Court as he was facing a serious offence.

Chamunorwa was caught in possession of $400 he robbed from his victim on Monday.

Allegations against him arose on November 3 along Glenview Way in Harare.

Dhlamini was driving in the company of a friend when he overtook a truck encroaching into Chamunorwa’s lane.

It is alleged that a furious Chamunorwa disembarked from his vehicle and confronted Dhlamini over reckless driving.

He produced a pistol with which he poked Dhlamini on the mouth before he force marched him to his vehicle telling him that he was going to hand him over to the police.

However he drove past two police camps before he stopped his vehicle near Eaglesvale Primary School, court heard.

It is alleged that Dhlamini demanded to be dropped off to no avail.

When Chamunorwa stopped his vehicle he ordered Dhlamini to lie down before he searched his pockets.

Court heard he stole $400 before he drove off.

However, Dhlamini managed to capture his car registration number and proceeded to file a police report.

Chamunorwa was arrested at his place of residence where the money, the gun and the vehicle he used to commit the offence were all found.

Linda Gadzikwa prosecuted.
