Violence erupts at roadblock as bouncer bashes police boss for blocking him from jumping queue


A bouncer from Glen View, Harare, Romio Jowo, was remanded to December 4 on US$200 bail by Concession magistrate Charity Maunga for assaulting a senior police officer at a roadblock.

The State led by Munyaradzi Nengomasha alleged that on October 25 at around 7pm, eight police officers were manning a roadblock in Mazowe, where a long queue developed after a haulage truck broke down, blocking traffic.

The suspect, who was driving a Mazda Bongo tried to jump the queue, and was stopped by one of the police details.

He became angry and a misunderstanding arose.

Jowo grabbed one police detail by the collar and their team leader, Sergeant Rudo Chipezeze (38), tried to refrain him.

He assaulted her.

She was saved from further assault by motorists at the roadblock.
