©️ THREE men who suffered injuries after they were allegedly assaulted by police officers enforcing the nationwide lockdown, have written to the commissioner-general of police Godwin Matanga, indicating their notice to sue.
As a result of the alleged assault, Nhari and Chadomba are demanding $300 000 each, while Ncube is claiming $250 000 as compensation.
Mhlanga said a misunderstanding arose when he wanted to proceed as the truck blocked the road.
“As a result, the police officer switched off the engine of his vehicle, removed his vehicle keys from the ignition, dragged him out of his vehicle and started to assault him with open hands all over his body. The soldier joined in and assaulted him using the butt of his gun.“As a result, our client suffered injuries all over his body and his ears were affected and he is currently having hearing problems,” Mhlanga claims.
“Immediately thereafter, our client made a police report at Gweru Central Police Station where he was insulted and threatened with physical violence by the officer-in-charge,” Chanayiwa said.
