“Firstly, we would like to thank Zimbabweans for their patience as we were conducting investigations as the Zimbabwe Republic Police and I want to make it clear that Peter Dube has not been extradited, what happened is that he has been deported from the Republic of Mozambique due to fake identity and travel documents, anything else in terms of the investigations and the court appearance will be advised in due course,” said Asst Comm Nyathi.

Dube, a Gweru businessman, was wanted in connection with three counts of murder, one attempted murder case, and violation of immigration laws.
