Bus smash claims 47
FORTY-SEVEN people were killed when two buses collided between the Zimbabwean capital Harare and the eastern town of Rusape, police said.
“We confirm 47 people have died in a road traffic accident at the 166km peg along the Harare-Mutare highway,” a police spokesman said.
On Twitter, the state-run Herald newspaper said pictures from the scene were too graphic to post.
The paper said the morgue at the local public hospital in Rusape had run out of space and sought help from a private funeral parlour.
