Last night when a South Africa-bound Proliner Bus sideswiped a haulage truck and caught fire at Nyamatikiti River near Chaka.
Most of the victims were burnt beyond recognition.
The bus had over 60 passengers on board, while the truck was laden with tyres when tragedy struck.
The accident took place around 8pm and by midnight the bus shell was still smouldering, with bodies inside.
Witnesses said more than 15 passengers managed to escape through the windows.
