A Malawian citizen committed suicide after jumping off from a moving bus going to Malawi, it has been learnt.
A 28-year-old Malawian is reported to have died on the spot after throwing himself out of the cruising bus some 195km along the Harare-Nyamapanda road.
According to acting Mashonaland East Province Police spokesperson, Sergeant Tendai Mwanza, the deceased was aboard a Scania Marcopolo cross-border bus.
“The bus was coming from Johannesburg en route to Malawi with 34 passengers on board. As it approached the 195km peg along the Harare-Nyamapanda road, the deceased allegedly stood up from his seat and proceeded to the back seat where he grabbed a satellite dish mounting and broke the rear windscreen before jumping off,” Sergeant Mwanza told Zimbabwe’s Herald newspaper.
The deceased was coming from South africa where he was working for some years and was returning back to his country.
