There was chaos at Rufaro Stadium today after part of the crowds broke the barriers in their bid to catch a glimpse of former President Robert Mugabe.
As the body was welcomed into the stadium, thousands of Zimbabweans waited outside the gates to get inside and occupy the best seat for an untethered view of the late liberation icon.
However, things quickly got out of hand as scores of locals pushed through the gates, causing a stampede. The numbers have not been confirmed but we can confidently state that there were a number of people who suffered serious injuries.
This resulted in the police responding to stop an escalation of the situation.
