47 killed in horror crash

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

At least 47 people have been killed after two buses collided in southeast Zimbabwe, local media reported.

Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the accident.

Nyathi said so deadly was the crash that police were, two hours later, still not sure how many people had been on the two buses.

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

Makoni district administrator and chairman of the district Civil Protection Unit (CPU) Mr Darlington Museka said Rusape General Hospital mortuary was overwhelmed and they had engaged Nyaradzo Funeral Services for assistance. "I can not say much as I am running around with this burden".

Shocking pictures showed bodies strewn along the road next to the mangled coaches.

Well-wishers helped ferry the injured to hospital.

One of the buses was trying to get around two trucks on a stretch of road where passing is prohibited, said Ellen Gwaradzimba, the minister for Manicaland province, in an interview with Zimbabwe's state broadcaster. "The use of vehicles that are not roadworthy, or drivers who do not seem to care for passengers safety, amount to a criminal breach of trust between bus operators and the paying commuters who expect and deserve safe transit", he said.
