FOUR people, two of them police officers, died on Wednesday after a Mahindra truck and a Trip Trans bus collided head-on at Mapinga escarpment.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) national spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the fatal road traffic accident.

“The ZRP confirms a fatal road traffic accident in which four people were killed when a Trip Trans bus collided with a ZRP Mahindra vehicle at the 65-kilometre peg along Harare-Chirundu road on February 28, 2024,” said Nyathi.

Eyewitnesses said the Mahindra truck from ZRP Chinhoyi was speeding although it could not be immediately ascertained what caused the accident.
