TWO Chinese nationals and their Zimbabwean accomplice have appeared in court facing attempted murder charges after they shot two people whom they suspected to be part of a gang of robbers they were exchanging fire with in Belgravia on Monday night.

Luo Tingpen, Li Yize, both 27, and Gamuchirai Nigel Zuze, 23, were not asked to plead to the charges when they appeared before Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa.

She  advised the trio to apply for bail at the High Court. A suspected robber whom they also exchanged fire with on the day in question, Thompson Runyowa, 31, also appeared before the same magistrate who ordered him to apply for bail at the High Court.

Runyowa’s three other accomplices are still at large. The quartet will appear in court on March 8 for routine remand.
