Head-On Collision Between 2 Buses Kills 47 in Zimbabwe

Head-On Collision Between 2 Buses Kills 47 in Zimbabwe

The accident involved two buses, Bolt Cutter and Smart Express around 5pm.

Forty-seven people were killed in Zimbabwe on Wednesday when two buses collided on a road between the capital Harare and the southeastern town of Rusape, police said.

"The accident occurred at around 7pm close to the toll-gate as we approach Rusape".

"We confirm 47 people have died in a road traffic accident at the 166-kilometre peg along the Harare-Mutare highway", police spokesman Paul Nyathi said. "Police are still attending the accident scene".

Rusape District medical officer Dr Tendai Nyafesu said the general hospital had been overwhelmed.

Three states could elect their first African-American governors, while several others were running LGBT candidates and Muslims. As of early Wednesday, voters were on track to send at least 99 women to the House, surpassing the previous record of 84.

"This is horrific", said Mr Museka, who was coordinating the transportation of the bodies and the injured to hospital. "I can not say much as I am running around with this burden".

Pictures from the scene showed the two buses with bodies and luggage strewn across the road.

One of the buses tried to pass two haulage trucks on a stretch of the road where overtaking is prohibited, resulting in the collision with an oncoming bus, Ellen Gwaradzimba, the provincial minister for Manicaland province, told the state broadcaster.

There have been several deadly bus accidents in Zimbabwe in recent years, including a June 2017 incident which left 43 people dead and 24 more injured when the driver lost control of the vehicle.

Some passengers were trapped in the bus and could be heard crying for help.
