    BEITBRIDGE –
    A Beitbridge municipal worker, Nkhumbeleni Mleya (35) was crashed to death by a refuse compactor while collecting garbage on Wednesday last week.
    Police Officer Commanding Beitbridge District (Dispol) Chief Superintendent Tichaona Nyongo confirmed the incident to The Mirror.
    Mleya together with his workmates were collecting garbage at the Zesa Complex. He was directing the driver of the refuse compactor to the garbage point behind the complex. The driver lost control of the brakes of the compactor and squashed Mleya onto a wall.
    The panicky driver could not remove the truck and another driver had to be called to do that.
    Mleya was taken to Beitbridge Hospital where he died of blood clotting. He was buried at his rural home in Mtetengwe on Sunday February 17. He is survived by his wife and three children.
