Pictures: Chitown touts’ drama-filled funeral march

Hundreds of commuter omnibus crews in Chitungwiza on Friday held a drama-filled funeral procession in the streets of the dormitory town, as they mourned their colleague, Lazurus Chimwendo who was knocked by commuter omnibus in the city centre on Sunday.

The procession comes a few days after bloody clashes rocked the town when over 100 commuter omnibus crews stormed council offices in protest over what they deemed exorbitant permit fee charges, but were repelled by a group of suspected Zanu PF youths “hired” by the local authority.

Several people, including passersby, were injured, as the touts and ruling party youths pelted each other with stones and logs, while several vehicles had their windows smashed in the melee.

The clashes started when kombi crews parked their vehicles at the council headquarters and demanded an audience with the local authority’s top management to register their displeasure over the $100 annual permit fees required for each kombi operating in Chitungwiza.

Below are pictures of Chimwendo’s funeral procession.
