The National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) honoured Nozipho Sibanda, a Form One pupil at Entumbane High School, who helped prevent a train disaster that could have killed about 300 passengers.
In September last year, Nozipho saw a broken railway line in Sawmills an hour before a Bulawayo-bound train from Victoria falls was set to pass and rushed to inform the station manager at Sawmills railway station. Last Friday, NRZ went to Nozipho’s school and committed to pay her school fees until she completes secondary school. NRZ also guaranteed her a place at its training school in Bulawayo should she wish to be enrolled there. NRZ Regional Marketing Manager Mr Joseph Temai praised Nozipho for her sense of responsibility.
