An unidentified man today threw himself under a ZUPCO bus along New Chitungwiza road in Zengeza 5, Chitungwiza this afternoon.
The incident took place adjacent to popular Downtown Service Station along the major highway.
The man believed to be in his late thirties was hit by the front wheels of the 75 seater after a few suicide attempts.
Eye witnesses who spoke to Bustop TV said the now deceased was missed by a few cars before he threw himself under a ZUPCO bus coming from the Chitungwiza Depot.
“The man’s face is not very familiar, when he had just passed through, l was alerted by a loud noise and emergency breaks that is when l learnt that he had thrown himself under a moving bus,” narrated a visibly shaken vendor only identified as Mai Chido.
Police officers took the lifeless body to Chitungwiza Central Hospital mortuary.
Health experts have attributed the rise in suicide case to anxiety and depression worsened by the country’s harsh economic conditions.
