Man killed in a suspected hit-and-run crash

A man was found dead in Nkulumane on Thursday morning in a suspected hit and run incident.

Police suspect the incident could have happened over night and the body of the man, who is thought to be between 25 – 35 years was only discovered on Thursday morning.

Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the indicent.

“Police received a report of a hit and run of an unknown pedestrian who was also hit by an unknown motor vehicle along Rangemore road near Housing Office in Nkulumane and this man died on the spot,” said Inspector Ncube. 

He said the deceased male adult was wearing a black jacket, a blue shirt, black trousers and black jersey and had no particulars on him. 

“The body was ferried to UBH for post mortem and we are appealing for relatives or any members of the public that are missing their relative aged between 25 and 35 who was wearing similar attire to report to Nkulumane or any nearest police station informing them of this person and they will be assisted to identify the body,” said Inspector Ncube. 

Inspector Ncube urged motorists to be human and render assistance when involved in an accident and urged members of the public to observe the curfew and abide by the law. 

“We also appeal to our motorists to respect life, once you are involved in an accident whether someone died or not, it is human to stop and render assistance than to just leave as if nothing has happened. 

“It also points that people do not observe the curfew, we are realising that most of our cases that we are receiving even robberies, rape, assaults, they are happening when the victim would also have violated the law, this man might have been walking along this road during curfew time and as such, during such times there would be no witness because everyone who will be supposed to be a witness will be locked home because of Covid-19,” he said
