Condolence Message by His Excellency the President, Cde E.D. Mnangagwa, following the Harare-Mutare Highway Road Accident that claimed nine lives, 9 April 2021
The death on Tuesday afternoon of nine people in a horrific road accident that occurred along the highway between Rusape and Mutare came as a great shock to me.
This road tragedy overshadowed what had passed as a relatively peaceful Easter Holiday for our Nation.
I was deeply saddened to learn that most of the victims of this accident were members of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Collaborators Association (ZILWACO) who were on their way to Mutare for a scheduled meeting by their association.
Our country cannot afford to lose precious lives needlessly through road accidents the majority of which are attributable to human error.
Life is sacrosanct and every one of us has a duty to respect and safeguard it.
I do once again, appeal to all motorists and road users to exercise extreme caution on our roads all the time in order to avoid loss of life through road carnage.
On behalf of the Party, ZANU PF, Government, and indeed on my behalf, I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and to members of ZILWACO on this sad loss.
In the same breath, we offer our prayers for the speedy recovery of all those who sustained injuries from this unfortunate mishap.
May the souls of the dear departed rest in eternal peace.
