Villagers in Chikombedzi are at loggerheads with the Zimbabwe Republic Police after one of the local traditional Shangani community was shot dead by a drunk police officer on Christmas day.

A Newsday report claims that the villager is yet to be buried as the community demands justice and answers first.

A delegation led by Masvingo Provincial Affairs minister Ezra Chadzamira is said to have held a charged meeting with the community leaders on Wednesday at Chibwedziva Primary School.

National overseer for the Alliance Church, David Hadhlani said:

This is not the first time that policemen have killed a person here. Gezani, Chambuta and Chibwedziva have become torture camps. Police are meeting instant justice in these areas. We need to mend the relationship between the police and the community.

In 2010, police from the Support Unit beat a drunken reveller to death. Again in 2014, police beat another man to death at Shulugu Primary School in Gezani, while his children and wife watched. Right now, they shot a teenager to death on Christmas Day and the boy is yet to be buried.

The meeting resolved that the dead man should be buried and the family assisted financially with funeral costs. The police undertook to conduct awareness campaigns to rebuild the strained relationship between the law enforcement agents and the community.
