Yet again,  sadly, in an all too familiar scene in Zimbabwe of imported vehicles bursting tyres and crashing, more lives have been lost on the roads.

A total of Seven Dynamos supporters died on the spot while 16 others were injured in a horrific accident at the 173-kilometre peg along the Harare/Bulawayo highway.

The supporters were travelling, reportedly in an Iveco minibus  when their vehicle burst  a tyre , causing the driver to lose control as the vehicle swerved off the highway close to the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Battlefields Camp.

The Dynamos Dembare team, was to  a  Castle Larger Premier match against Chapungu in Gweru, where the Dynamos fans were heading to before the unfortunate incident resulting in the deaths of seven Dynamos supporters on the spot.

Four of the injured Dynamos supporters  were rushed to  Kadoma  General hospital while the others are undergoing treatment at  Kwekwe General Hospital in Midlands province.
