SOME decomposed human remains were this week discovered in the open space between the B-section and a cotton weaving complex in Vengere, Rusape.
Rusape district police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Muzondiwa Clean confirmed the discovery of the human remains.
He said the bones were discovered on Monday by 40-year-old Jestina Matsanga while on her way to her garden along Rusape River and alerted police.
“Jestina Matsanga and her colleague were going to their garden when they discovered the human remains at an anthill and alerted the police.
“The homicide team attended the scene and investigations revealed that the anthill was, sometime ago, used for brick molding. The human remains were on top of the anthill covered with soil and shrubs,” said Asst Insp Clean.
Police investigations concluded that the human remains could have been interred in a grave before the anthill was tempered with by brick moulders.
The human remains were not properly reburied, and may have been exposed again due to soil erosion.
“As the police we discourage land degradation, illegal moulding of bricks, sand excavation and deforestation,” said Asst Insp Clean
