Toddler 'Teargased' To Death By Riot Police

A toddler has reportedly died in the city's oldest township Makhokhoba after police threw a tear gas at the kid's family house during the #ZimShutDown skirmishes on Wednesday this week.

A confidential source confided to Zim Metro that, the innocent kid whose name can not be disclosed, for ethical reasons, suffocated to death after inhaling the deadly smoke.

"She suffocated from teargas whilst inside the house and then the mother tried to take her out she was met with the smoke again," a citizen reporter whose spoke on condition of anonymity told Zim Metro today.

"I am at Burombo flats now and just spoke to three women who confirmed the death of a 1 year 6 months old child," the citizen reporter said.

"The women said the kid died of suffocation from tear gas, and another man also died after being rushed to the hospital."

During the uprising, armed police reportedly descendend heavily on any person at their sight as protesting crowds ran amok.

They also randomly threw tear gas at homes where innocent civilians had taken refuge to avoid skirmishes outside.

A human rights watch group Amnesty International on Thursday condemned Zimbabwe police for gross human rights violations after cases of police brutality on civilians during the protests went viral on Social Media.

Civic society leaders have also condemned arrests made in Bulawayo following the Wednesday demonstration.

A total of 90 people have so far been arrested in the city including minors who are currently in police custody awaiting trial.

Meanwhile according to impeccable sources, 84 people arrested and remanded in custody have been moved to Khami remand prison while one minor is still detained at Luveve remand prison. Zim Metro
