The members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police were reportedly at it yet again on Tuesday when they threw teargas inside a bus that was bound for Beitbridge.
It is alleged that the Mulaudzi bus which was going to Beitbridge got involved in a chase with the police along Masvingo Road causing pandemonium in the bus. Some passengers had to exit through the windows as they could not stand the effects of the teargas.

It is disappointing that this is not the first time teargas has been thrown into a bus.
Some months back, a member of the Zimbabwe Republic Police threw teargas into a bus and some passengers had to dangerously exit through the windows as they could not cope with the teargas in the bus.

There was a promise that action would be taken against the police officer, but nothing was reported on the result.
History has happened yet again. The report also stated that there had been a speed chase between the police and the bus.
It was irresponsible of the bus driver as well to speed away from the police while having many passengers inside. It could have gone bad and led to the loss of lives.
It is concerning that there were young children on the bus whose lives could have been lost if the bus would have overturned. One wonders why the bus was trying to evade the law enforcement agencies. Even though the police may have been wrong for throwing tear gas inside the bus, the bus driver was also wrong for putting the lives of passengers in grave danger by speeding away from the law enforcement agencies.
