Harare bus-rank tout was murdered in cold blood by a bus crew in a fight over passengers, early Wednesday in Harare.
The yet-to-be-identified tout allegedly died on the spot after he was stabbed during an altercation at around 5 AM.
The body of the unnamed man was still at 4th Street bus terminus at 7 AM as police interviewed witnesses.
Speaking during an interview, a witness who was privy to the incident confirmed the incident to ZimLive.
“He was stabbed in the chest during a fight over passengers at around 5 AM. He was tussling with a C.A.G Travellers Coaches bus crew,” said the witness.
The witness added that following the incident, the C.A.G bus left for Mutare without notifying any relevant authorities.
The dead man’s body was covered with a purple blanket as police canvassed the area for witnesses.
This is not the first time touts and bus crews have engaged in nasty fights over passengers. As a result of these nasty fallouts, some travelers have lost property or have been roughed up by the touts who often drag them – against their will – to a particular bus.
