A street vendor was apparently shot and injured by the ZRP police offers during a clash between the police and the vendors. A tweet by a former ZINSAU student leader Makomborero Haruzivishe on Saturday afternoon claimed that the vendor had been shot as police “fought vendors off the streets”.
It’s not yet clear how the clash started and how the individual ended up getting shot.
Said the tweet:
Shot by members of @PoliceZimbabwe in Harare CBD right now.
Painful to watch a fellow youth in excruciating pain simply because the government has declared war on livelihoods.
They failed to eliminate poverty,they now after eliminating us poor people.
Get well soon comrade! pic.twitter.com/FLz4MyEVrE
