EIGHT Zimbabweans, including a Makonde woman wanted for kidnapping three minors in separate incidents, have been placed on the International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol)'s most wanted list.
Miriam Bwanali, who allegedly kidnapped a month-old baby at Montagu Spar in central Harare over two years ago, evaded arrest during a police raid on her home and is believed to have skipped the country to South Africa.
Bwanali was also implicated in the kidnapping of two other children, a boy and a girl, who were rescued by police in Mutoko, where she was alleged to have taken them for safekeeping at a relative's homestead.
The eight fugitives are among 7 022 criminals who have been placed on Interpol's Red Notice and are wanted for committing offenses that include terrorism, corruption, human trafficking, and escaping from lawful custody.
A Red Notice is a request to law enforcement agencies worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.
Also on the list is Tanaka Rusike (34), a man from Gweru who allegedly brutally killed his wife and left their six-month-old son suckling from the corpse.
Rusike, who has been on the run since December 2017, is accused of killing his spouse, Nozipho Tecla Mpofu, in cold blood.
