ZIMBABWE – A police officer manning a roadblock on Khami Road in Bulawayo has been run over by a Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) bus.
The bus dragged the female cop for about 30 metres and broke her into pieces.
Police officers who attended the scene initially tried to carry the body to a metal coffin, but due to the impact on the body which had broken into several pieces they could not.
The Chronicle reports that they resorted to laying the coffin by its side and pushing the body into it.
The police also had to cover bloodstains on the tarmac with sand.
ZimLive reports that the body of the police officer was uncollected for more than an hour as the incident is now under investigation.
Some commentators said it was just a matter of time since the buses contracted by ZUPCO are not roadworthy.
Last year, a number of ZUPCO buses were involved in road accidents as a result of mechanical faults.
