The victim, 35-year-old Trust Moyo of Inyathi in the Bubi District, was thrown off a Dubbies Bus while it was on its way from Bulawayo to Muchesu in Binga.

Such situations have occurred in the past. In Matopo District in 2011, a bus conductor was carrying passengers’ bags when he fell from the top of the carrier.

His body was found by a bystander down the road, who then called the police.
