An NRZ official who refused to be named in this report as he doesn’t have authority to speak to the press said police from Kuwadzana said the incident did not take place in their area. He added:Cold-Comfort Train-suicide

We saw him [the victim] when we were about 100 metres away. He was walking very close to the railway and was unfazed when we rang the bell both for him and the vehicles.

Asked why they applied brakes when the man was not on the rails, the official said: It’s protocol, we should try to avoid accidents. This man was very close to the rails and anything could happen. We were also approaching a junction.
