Police Once Warned Rimbi Tours Bosses Over Their Drivers’ Conduct

Rimbi Tours bus that killed one person along the Mutoko-Nyamapanda highway was warned recently about the conduct of its bus drivers on the road by police.

Penyai Misheck, 39, of Marlborough, was driving the bus when he attempted to avoid a Tipper vehicle driven by Ackim Chikakaradzo, 24, of Borrowdale, and collided with the truck’s loading box.

Inspector Simon Chazovachii, a Mashonaland East provincial police spokeswoman, verified the accident and said the injured were taken to Mutoko District Hospital.

“Police are investigating a road traffic accident involving a Rimbi bus where one person died on the spot and seven passengers were injured,” said Insp Chazovachii.

“We continue to urge passengers to warn speeding drivers as well as report any driver violating road safety rules. We urge drivers to exercise caution on roads as well as respect the sanctity of life,” said Insp Chazovachii.
