TRAGEDY struck police in Bulawayo this Thursday morning when a ZUPCO bus ran over a female police officer who was manning a roadblock along Khami road in Bulawayo.
The cop was dragged for over 30 metres on the hard tarmac and was pronounced dead om the spot, but her body remained uncollected for close to an hour. Officers at the scene said they were not permitted to tamper with the scene and were there only to guard the scene until relevant authorities were on the site.
The incident took place along city-Khami Road near the flyover in Bulawayo where the police were manning a road block.
“The bus dragged the female cop for about 30 metres and broke her into pieces,” and eyewitness at the scene told the Zimbabwe Voice.
Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi could not immediately issue a statement on the accident.
