Zim Journalist Shot Dead In South-Africa | LATEST


The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) says it’s probing the death of Godknows Nare.

The Zimbabwean journalist and filmmaker was killed in an apparent shootout with police on Monday.

Nare was best known for his satirical film, Great Britain’s Most Mischievous Son, which is about the fictional death of President Robert Mugabe.

Metro Police say they had been tracking a hijacked vehicle when the occupants of Nare’s car opened fire.

But, the Ipid says they haven’t found any early indications that shots were fired at police.

Nare’s family says he had turned his life around since his armed robbery arrest in 1995.

He was now making a living through his film work. – eNCA

    No such thing as a Zimbabwean journalist. They are story tellers and only story tellers. Journalism has a code of ethics and journalists are proud of their work.

    Zimbabwe only produces Fake news artists or story tellers.
