A heartbreaking video is doing the rounds on social media depicting the harrowing moment a police officer was being manhandled by an angry mob. This comes after the policeman, in an attempt to beat a woman, hit the woman’s baby which she was carrying. The baby died on the spot.
The incident happened in neighboring Zimbabwe and people can be seen holding the policeman by the belt as they shuffled him. Also in the same shot, the mother of the dead child can be seen crying hysterically as she held the lifeless body of her now-deceased child.
Eyewitnesses say the incident happened in Harare and the policeman was trying to scare the woman to leave the city since the country is under lockdown. It is at this point that he swung his button stick and hit the innocent child who died on the spot. Reports suggested the child is 9 months old.
Social media users understandably got irate and blamed the police for using excessive force all the time.

This officer is doing exactly what he is trained to do- brutalize. This is the policing culture in Zimbabwe. Year after year we bring the issue of police brutality up and nothing changes. Now they have killed a baby. #timetoact #ZimbabweanLivesMatter #ZanupfMustGo https://t.co/YLhIRilqds

‘Notorious hitman’ charged in Senzo Meyiwa case convicted of several murders
‘Notorious hitman’ charged in Senzo Meyiwa case convicted of several murders. A notorious 32-year-old KwaZulu-Natal hitman, who has been implicated in the murder of former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa, has been convicted on six counts of murder
Fisokuhle Ntuli appeared in the Esikhaleni regional court in northern KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday for sentencing after he was convicted on six counts of murder, one attempted murder charge and four counts of being in possession of unlawful firearms and ammunition a day earlier.
Ntuli, who was arrested by the task team investigating political killings in the province, has been found guilty of the 2016 murder of ANC councillor Thami Nyembe, who was gunned down in Nongoma. Nyembe’s wife sustained serious injuries during the shooting but survived the encounter.
According to the charge sheet, Ntuli’s reign of terror in Nongoma began in April 2015 when he murdered Bhutiza Mahlobo.

The following year he gunned down Nyembe, with his wife, Nolwazi Mngomezulu, surviving the attack despite being shot and critically injured.
In 2017 Ntuli hunted down three brothers who were willing to testify as witnesses in the murder of Nyembe.
Brothers Sibusiso Phiwayinkosi, Mcebisi and Sibusiso Elvis Zulu were killed by Ntuli in January 2017.
His last hit before his arrest was Spamandla Zungu, who Ntuli murdered in August 2018.
According to national police spokesperson Brig Vishnu Naidoo, Ntuli is among the accused in the Meyiwa murder case.
“He is charged separately in the matter of Senzo Meyiwa. He is accused [number] five in that matter.”
Ntuli’s case was adjourned on Tuesday to December 9 for sentencing after his attorney Scelo Zungu applied for a pre-sentence report to be presented in court.
The pre-sentence report would require a parole officer and social worker visiting the family of Ntuli to gather information regarding his exceptional circumstances.

BURNING TAXIS IN KORSTEN, GQEBERHA
A video posted on social media by Mzansi’s leading crime activist, Yusuf Abramjee, shows about three taxis engulfed in flames during daylight on Durban Road, Gqeberha.
The carnage scenes were soon followed by a report from a local radio station. It said the violent chaos was “an altercation between taxi drivers and Somalian shop owners.
“Police in Gqeberha and several other role-players are on scene at the taxi rank in Korsten where an altercation between taxi drivers and Somalian shop owners escalated. Several vehicles and a shop were set alight. This is a developing story image supplied,” the outlet said.
SHOCKED SOUTH AFRICANS REACT TO GQEBERHA WAR
Such violent drama does not need much time for locals to pick up phones and comment strongly. The warzone in Gqebera invited a fair share of political views and conspiracies.
Here are some of the reactions we picked up from Twitter:
“What’s happening in Gqeberha is a result of porous borders in SA. The uncontrolled influx of illegal immigrants undermines our sovereignty and poses a security threat to the citizens of this country. The first mandate of any state is to protect its citizens, we are in a failing state,” @JustJamal_ said.
“He banna! Really, immigrants behaving like this in another country. Our government is really letting the side down. This is just anarchy! Something HAS TO BE DONE,” @Ignaciohb3 said.
“If this it is really between South African businessmen (taxi owners) and Somalians will be interesting it will be time for Anc and Eff to intervene since it’s been a long time San’s asking government to enforce immigration laws and tighten our borders,” @UNgumzamo said.

Latest on King Misuzulu’s health after being poisoned – Family speaks out
Latest on King Misuzulu’s health after being poisoned – Family speaks out. Zulu King Misuzulu kaZwelithini has fully recovered following suspicions that he may have been poisoned during his birthday party last week, the royal family has confirmed.
King Misuzulu was unable to address his subjects during uMkhosi weLembe (Shaka’s Day) celebration on a Heritage Day after he got sick during his birthday celebration a day before.
The king had a birthday dinner at one of the restaurants at the Pearls in Umhlanga, in Durban. He suddenly got sick and left the party immediately.
His condition became severe to a point where his doctor was called, according to the sources.
He was suspected to have been poisoned as his sickness was sudden.
The doctor then advised that he was not fit to make an address during uMkhosi weLembe as his condition was closely monitored.
Prince Thulani, the spokesperson for the royal family, said the king has made great progress after his sudden illness.
He said the king’s blood test results have not been made available to the family at this stage.
“The king is doing very well, he has fully recovered. We have not received the results. We understand that it is confidential information between the king and his doctor.
“I will not be able to ask or divulge that information without his consent. But I can confirm that the king has fully recovered,” said Prince Thulani.
King Misuzulu addressed the royal family meeting during the week and touched on the controversial issue of succession which has caused division within the family.
He said the disputes over succession were not new within the royal family, urging all members to work together to preserve the power of the throne.
This comes as some members of the family have not accepted him as a king while others have lodged legal disputes against his nomination.
Senior royal family members, Prince Mbonisi and Princess Thembi have been leading the opposing members, challenging King Misuzulu, they have pushed for Prince Simakade, King Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu’s eldest surviving son to take over the throne.
They both snubbed the meeting which took place at the old legislator in Ulundi.
King Misuzulu said the throne belongs to all royal families and it was everyone’s responsibility to preserve it.
“This throne does not belong to Princess Thembi or Prince Simakade but it belongs to you, the Zulu nation. I wish to express that we hope this is the last meeting of this sort trying to resolve the impasse because nothing pains me more than having to restart leadership processes that are legally sound,” he told the meeting.
