A taxi driver was bashed after failing to stop in time in order to give way to President Mnangagwa’s zooming motorcade.
One of the policeman from the escort team which is part of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s security detail disembarked from his motorcycle to deliver swift and brutal justice on the offender by banging his head against the dashboard of his own car.
Recently, the Zimbabwe Republic Police and the Harare City Council have been urging motorists to respect vehicles sounding sirens. This follows complaints from emergency service providers such as ambulance drivers that some motorists especially pirate taxis refused to give way to ambulances and fire engines.
According to the law, all motorists must pull off the road and give the right of way to the Presidential motorcade.
The Highway Code says a fire engine, ambulance or police vehicle sounding its sirens takes precedence over all other traffic, remain stationary until it has passed.
In 2012 one person died on the spot while 15 others were injured when a police escort vehicle leading the Presidential motorcade was involved in a head-on collision with a commuter omnibus along the Robert Mugabe Highway in Zvimba.
