Notorious Avenues hooker arrested; she filmed clients in the nude and threatened to expose them

Court Reporter


HARARE: A fugitive Avenues hooker well-known for terrorising men and robbing them of their belongings has now been arrested.

Gaylar Muroyi, 27, who has several cases pending at the courts was nabbed recently after being on the run for six months.

She was arraigned before magistrate Tilda Mazhande Monday facing robbery charges.

The judge remanded the suspect in custody and advised her to apply for bail at the High Court.

Muroyi also had several warrants of arrest since she defaulted court sessions for the other pending cases.

She is being accused of committing the offences in connivance with eight other accomplices.

Four are already on remand while the other four are still on the run.

The complainant in the latest case is one Wongani Mawola Banda.

Court heard that on the day in question, Banda was parked at Five Avenue shopping centre when Muroyi’s accomplice approached him and pulled up his t-shirt to reveal a pistol which was tucked in his trousers.

It is alleged that that moment Muroyi and four other individuals got into the vehicle and pulled Banda to the back seat.

One of the suspects took control of the vehicle and they drove to a house in the Avenues area while Banda was blindfolded.

When they entered house, the group allegedly started assaulting Banda.

They took his bank cards and ordered him to give them his personal identification numbers (PIN) for the bank and Eco Cash accounts.

Prosecutors say the group undressed the complainant and started taking photos of him while in the nude, threatening to circulate them on social media.

After they were given the bank access codes, the four of the accused went shopping and later released Banda around midnight.

He reported the case to the police, resulting in Muroyi’s accomplices being arrested two days later.
