Mourners run berserk …Police Officers threatened!

Two mourners at the funeral of a police officer shot dead by her husband went berserk yesterday wanting to beat up the accused when he was brought in for indications by police.

The unidentified men, believed to be related to slain Juliana Chirinhe, caused a scene that saw female officers who were among the mourners run for dear life.

The two wanted to attack Tichaona Chirinhe, who was being led by police detectives into the bedroom where the tragic incident took place. “Kana muchindisunga ndisungei ndiende kujeri; mhondi iyi irikudei pano? Ndati mhondi iyi yavingei pano? Akajaidzwa,” one of the men shouted.

Police officers and other mourners quickly apprehended the two and took them away from the area to allow homicide detectives to carry out their investigations for evidence needed in prosecution. Mourners followed proceedings through the window where Chirinhe was heard struggling to justify his claims that he accidentally discharged the trigger leading to the shooting of the deceased, Juliana, in the abdomen.

Some of the questions he failed to answer included why he decided to clean the pistol before following precautionary measures of disassembling the gun.

He also failed to explain his position when he took the shot and the position of the deceased.

Police detectives had to reverse their vehicle close to the door to take Chirinhe as tension grew. Chirinhe was under police custody following his arrest on Sunday after he shot Juliana, who died upon admission at the Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.

She was 37.
