Three ZRP Traffic officers have been arrested in Murehwa after they fatally assaulted a Kombi driver following a disgrunlement over the latter’s failure to cough up a $10 bribe on Saturday on an unofficially mounted road block.
The three, two males and a female, were yesterday still assisting with investigations. It is unknown if they are being investigated in custody or have been bailed.
Police confirmed the incident which occurred at a roadblock at Bemba Farm along the Marondera-Murehwa Road at around 3pm.
Sources said the trio demanded $10 from Mugove Manonge (30) after they had arrested him at the roadblock for a traffic offence.
Manonge allegedly told them that he had $5 on him, resulting in an argument with the cops who assaulted him until he fell unconscious. The whole horror event happened in full view of the driver’s colleague and passengers who appear visibly shocked in the video.
He died on the spot.
