Details over what caused the accident are still sketchy as the Police are yet to release a statement.
However, some social media users have suggested that the Government should remove old Zupco buses arguing that they are death traps.
@ritchiechikuni took to Twitter and wrote:
The Gvt should remove those ramshackle buses from our roads. 80% of ZUPCO buses will not pass a proper VID Inspection. Are these buses being inspected? Remove those death traps from our roads.
Recently, survivors of the head-on collision between two ZUPCO buses blamed one of the drivers for the accident, saying he was overspeeding.
Both drivers died in the crash, which claimed four lives and injured 67 others.
The fatal crash occurred at the 101 km peg along the Harare-Chirundu Road.
Initially, seven people were reported to have died in the accident. The Zimbabwe Republic Police later released a second statement, in which it revised the number of deceased downwards from seven to four. The police also revised the number of injured people upwards from 32 to 67.
One of the survivors, only identified as Chitemerere, told lifestyle tabloid H-Metro,
“The driver is to blame for the accident after he failed to apply the brakes, resulting in him encroaching onto the other lane in a bid to avoid a collision with the tanker. He failed, resulting in the head-on collision.”
