Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr David Parirenyatwa said Government has ordered a full investigation into the cause of the accident that killed 21 health workers in Tsholotsho last Saturday. He said this after visiting the hospitalised patients at Mpilo Central Hospital and United Bulawayo Hospitals on Friday.
We are told that there were arguments with the driver which is why we have ordered a full enquiry into exactly what happened. We heard he would travel at 20km, at one stage 10km per hour and then suddenly speed up. So we need to go into those details and I am glad that the province has instituted this particular inquiry to see exactly what happened so that it teaches us for the future. We are very disheartened by this tragic incident.
