Emotions ran high at the burial of Neil Tanatswa Mutyora (3) with residents, family members and interest groups attacking the police heavy-handedness for the demise of the young boy.
Residents said that police were being tough on commuter omnibus operators by demanding bribes which makes them flee whenever they see police officers in the discharge of their duties.
Police spokesperson senior assistant commissioner Charity Charamba however said the police was not responsible for the accident but the driver involved was in police custody and being charged.
“Whilst the ZRP regret the loss of innocent life, we are demanding Commuter Omnibus drivers not to flee from the police and observe the laws of the country,” Charamba said.
Neil was buried at the Granville Mbudzi Cemetery on Thursday April 24.
