A 17-year-old Mbare boy who was driving a bus with one passenger on board struck and killed a 7-year-old boy on Monday in the same suburb.
The now-deceased boy was playing football with friends along a street in the high-density suburb.
The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) revealed the tragic incident Tuesday via their official Twitter page but did not give further details on it. Police said:
