Head on collision between two buses kills 47 in Zimbabwe


Two long distance buses going opposite directions collided near Rusape, about 170 kilometres east of the capital Harare on Wednesday evening, said police spokesman Paul Nyathi. The death toll could rise because there 80 others admitted to hospital, some with serious injuries. One of the buses tried to pass two haulage trucks on a stretch of the road where overtaking is prohibited, resulting in the collision with an oncoming bus, Ellen Gwaradzimba, the provincial minister for Manicaland province, told the state broadcaster. Both buses were speeding, she said. The number of dead bodies have overwhelmed the small town’s morgue, which can only accommodate up to 16 bodies, reported the state-run Herald newspaper.
