News:Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission Investigates Alleged Bulawayo Police Brutality

<vote /> Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission yesterday started investigations at Burombo Flats in the Nguboyenja high density suburb in Bulawayo to investigate what transpired during last week’s stay away following reports that police allegedly tortured innocent civilians.

Burombo Flats, is home to the family of David Mutasa whose one year-old child, Kupakwashe, died after allegedly inhaling excessive tear gas, which police used to flush out suspects involved in violent protests.

ZHRC commissioner Japhet Ndabeni-Ncube said

We are here to investigate the complaints by the people of Burombo that their rights were violated on the day there was a stay away. We understand that the police came here and threw teargas in the buildings and people were forced out and they were harassed so we are here to find out for ourselves what exactly happened here.
