Zimbabwe: Forty-two people feared to have burnt to death after a Brooklyn Express bus caught fire along the Beitbridge-Bulawayo road last night.
National police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba, told us that over 27 people are reported to have been injured.
Zimbabwe Police have confirmed the accident. It is suspected a gas tank belonging to one of the passengers caused the inferno in the bus. Some of the images have been censored as they are more graphic.
The injured witnesses said that a gas smell engulfed the bus which was travelling from Zvishavane to Beitbridge via Filabusi and when the bus conductor switched on the lights to check that’s when the bus caught fire.
The bus was coming from Zvishavane headed for Mussina, South Africa.
This tragic accident comes barely two weeks after two other buses side swiped along the Harare-Mutare road that led to the death of 50 passengers and scores hospitalised.
