ZRP RELEASES STATEMENT ON YESTERDAY’S RIOT AND SHOOTING
HARARE – AT least one person was killed, while two others were seriously injured yesterday evening in Harare when police clashed with commuters in the central business district (CBD).
Two vehicles were reduced to shells, while Harare Central Police Station was stoned and heavily damaged by a rowdy mob. Windows at the entrance to the charge office were shattered by missiles as people protested the death of a man in the capital.
The mayhem followed a directive by Harare City Council banning commuter omnibus operators and on-street vendors from operating in the CBD.
