FUGITIVE Gweru businessman Peter Dube, who is being sought by police in connection with three murder cases committed in 2021, has been put on the International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol)’s most wanted list.

He also faces a separate attempted murder charge. Investigations by police have corroborated our Harare Bureau’s expose that Dube (37) skipped the country to South Africa, where he changed his identity before relocating to Ireland. However, Interpol has now been roped in to facilitate the arrest and extradition of the suspected murderer.

A Red Notice — which is a request to law-enforcement agencies worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender or similar legal action — has since been issued for Dube.
