The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has ordered the Mukumbira family to take the dead body of Ronald Mukumbira they left at Elias Mudzuri’s home in Zaka.
Ronald died following brutal assault – allegedly by Mudzuri, the MDC-T Vice President and other men, allegedly over missing pool table balls, which Mukumbira was accused of stealing.
His family then left the body on a verandah at Mudzuri’s home in the Four Miles area of Zaka at 6 AM Wednesday morning.
The family’s spokesperson said police ordered them to take back his body saying they have instructions “from the top.”
Commenting on the matter, some social media users said the culture of dumping dead bodies at the alleged killers’ places must fall.
Others observed that the bereaved family was acting this way because it was suspecting that the police was covering up a murder case.
Others urged the politician to meet with the bereaved family and have talks on the way forward adding that the payment of reparations does not resurrect the dead but brings peace between the families.
