Harare to Mutare: The road that witnessed head-on collision between two buses killing 47 people
Recently, the road from Harare to Mutare in Zimbabwe has been in news as a head-on collision between two buses killed 47 people. Two buses going in opposite directions collided near Rusape, a small town about 170 kilometers (105 miles) east of the capital Harare on 7 November.
Citing this road accident, Jonathan Nathaniel Moyo pulled the current President of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa in the middle of an alleged controversy that has no scientific evidence in reality. The 61-year old Zimbabwean politician claimed that Mr. President is involved in the black magic. According to his claims, the President's involvement in such alleged activity is the root cause of baffling fires that are creating terrible situations in varied places in Zimbabwe.
President of Zimbabwe Mnangagwa headed to the West African country of Guinea for two days during the starting period of November to sign several agreements. Linking his visit to Guinea by terming it 'unprecedented carnage,' Jonathan Moyo said that 'over 110 people died on the streets within just two weeks since he visited the West African country.'
Devdiscourse traveled the same deadly road on 21 November by car and took note of the comparatively better quality of this road in Zimbabwe where road crashes are common due to poor road conditions. The head-on collision between two buses on this road seems to be the result of reckless driving at high speed.
