Two ZRP officers are in the soup following Friday’s incident at Highglen Road near Mashayabhande Road in Harare, which led to the death of a 54-year-old man.

The police officers who were on an unsanctioned act were allegedly involved in a scuffle with a pirate kombi driver who then lost control of the vehicle which then hit a pedestrian.

In a statement, the police said that criminal charges and disciplinary measures are being taken against the rogue officers who are said to be currently nursing injuries, sustained from a mob attack, at a local hospital under guard.
