Soldiers run amok beating up people in Harare: Nehanda Citizen Reports

By a Citizen Reporter

Soldiers beat up people at the Fourth Street bus terminus in Harare on Monday. This was allegedly in retaliation at an earlier incident when a soldier was beaten up by rank marshals, most likely for refusing to pay bus fare and insisting on getting a free ride.

The soldiers ran around the rank, beating up commuters, members of the general public with bare hands, army belts & other things in a classic display of lawlessness, basic human rights violations and intimidation, in a so-called free country.

People were running in all directions, completely blocking traffic along Kenneth Kaunda Avenue. This reporter escaped unharmed by the grace of God.

The beatings only stopped after the intervention of the military police who were conspicuous by their sudden arrival as if they knew that their counterparts where going on this terror campaign in the middle of the capital.

May God be with our beautiful country. The number of the injured were not clear as everyone was trying to get away from the scene. I got into a lift with a man who was bleeding with a gush in his head after being struck by a metal object, with blood covering the front of his t-shirt.
