Students Cheat Death In Tragic Road Accident

By Judith Matanire

Several students from Mutero High School were injured this morning in a tragic road accident along the Harare-Masvingo Road at Munyathi.

The incident, which occurred at around 10:00 this morning, involved a commuter omnibus carrying 18 students, which overturned, causing injuries but thankfully, no fatalities.

Mash East Police Spokesperson Simon Chazovachii and the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) both confirmed the incident, with Chazovachii noting that the injured students were taken to Chivhu Hospital for treatment. The ZRP detailed on X (formerly Twitter)

“The ZRP confirms that a Toyota Quantum Kombi was involved in a serious road traffic accident at the 106 km peg along Harare-Beitbridge Road near Chivhu whilst carrying school children from Mutero High School in Gutu, the driver and a parent. The kombi was on its way to Masvingo when the driver lost control and the Kombi over-turned three times near Munyati Bridge and landed on its wheels,” reads the post.

While many expressed relief that all students survived. The accident occurred as several boarding students were returning to Mutero High School for the second term, underscoring the need for improved safety measures on the roads.

As the injured students undergo treatment, authorities and stakeholders are urged to address concerns raised about emergency services to prevent similar incidents in the future. *Nhau/Indaba*
