In a statement, President Mnangagwa directed the police to descend heavily on reckless drivers as he consoled families that lost relatives when a Chawasarira bus collided head-on with a commuter omnibus at the 152km peg along the Harare-Bulawayo highway on Thursday morning.
The accident killed 13 people on the spot and left 23 others injured. Mnangagwa said Government will assist the families by meeting all funeral and burial expenses. He also wished a speedy recovery to all those injured in the accident. Part of Mnangagwa’s statement reads:
The death of 13 commuters in a traffic accident near Kadoma yesterday has once again highlighted the needless loss of precious lives on our roads through negligent driving. That so many lives continue to be lost repeatedly suggests growing indiscipline on our roads. A robust response by way of enforcement of traffic rules is thus required. All transport operators must respect life and limb by ensuring that their vehicles are roadworthy and that their drivers exercise maximum caution on the road.
