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.
