Christmas Collection Launched For Zimbabwean Victims Of N1 Bus Fire Incident

A Christmas collection has started for Zimbabweans who lost their goods after a bus they were travelling in caught fire on South Africa’s N1 earlier this month.

In a message to Fourways residents, two of the organisers of the collection, Greg and Liesl Milne said:

There were 46 passengers who were travelling back home to Zimbabwe to visit their families.

Many of these passengers only go home once a year, and some only every few years, after working and saving up to provide much-needed clothes, food, toys, money and school stationery to their families in Zimbabwe.

The bus was travelling from Cape Town when a tyre burst sparked the fire on December 11 on the N1 near the William Nicol off-ramp in Johannesburg.

No one was injured in the incident but the passengers, mostly women and children, lost all their possessions.
