16 June 2021

By A Correspondent- A bus terminus tout was killed, allegedly by a bus crew, early Wednesday in Harare.

The body of the unnamed man was still at the 4th Street bus terminus at 7AM as police interviewed witnesses.

A witness at the scene told ZimLive by phone: “He was stabbed in the chest during a fight over passengers at around 5AM. He was tussling with a C.A.G Travellers Coaches bus crew.”

The witness said the C.A.G bus had left for Mutare after the incident.

The dead man’s body was covered with a purple blanket as police canvassed the area for witnesses.

Police spokesman Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said he was yet to get a report of the incident.

Touts at bus terminus often engage in nasty fights over passengers. Some travellers have lost property or been roughed up by the touts who often drag them – against their will – to a particular bus
