Police said on Thursday that forty-five people were killed when the driver of a passenger bus lost control of the vehicle in north-western Zimbabwe.
Police spokesperson Charity Charamba said that forty-three people died at the scene of the accident, while two others died of their injuries on Thursday morning.
Chatamba said a total of 67 passengers were travelling on the bus, with several of them severely injured.
According to her, the driver failed to negotiate a curve on the road from the capital, Harare, towards the Zambian border town of Chirundu.
The state of roads in Zimbabwe is poor due to a long-running economic slump that has left President Robert Mugabe’s government cash-strapped. (NAN)
