A former policeman at Beitbridge has reportedly been shot dead on  allegations of failing to stop at a ZRP checkpoint at Zezani.

Although details are not yet clear it is suspected the deceased was transporting some foreigners illegally in the country en-route to South Africa illegally.

National Police spokesman Senior Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said he was yet to get information from Beitbridge.

But the Beitbridge social media was awash with images of the deceased ex-cop identified as Ipela who lived at Lutumba after leaving the force.
