Meanwhile, one person was killed while 28 others were injured, eight of them seriously, when a Mutare-bound Mercedes-Benz Sprinter rammed into a Sabot staff bus at Mabvuku turn-off yesterday morning, writes Tedious Manyepo.
According to eyewitnesses, the Sabot staff bus from Mabvuku heading for the city, failed to give way to the speeding minibus which crashed onto the articulated bus’ trailer.
National police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba confirmed the accident as she expressed concern on the inhumane behaviour of onlookers who were taking photos instead of lending a helping hand to accident victims.
“It is unfortunate that people’s lives continue to be lost due to human error. But our latest concern as the Zimbabwe Republic Police is the inhumane behaviour being exhibited by citizens at accident scenes. Instead of lending a hand or else calling the police and ambulance services, people, especially the youths, are seen busy taking photos to share on social media platforms.
“That culture is not Zimbabwean, to say the least. Are we wishing each other death?” said Snr Asst Comm Charamba.
