16 lives lost, 192 injured since the beginning of Easter holidays


Road traffic accidents have so far claimed 16 lives injuring 192 since the beginning of Easter holidays.

Statistics provided by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) show that more lives have been lost this year compared to the same period last year with the acting national spokesperson of the ZRP Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi blaming the rise in road carnage to human error.

Minister of Transport and Infrastructural Development Honourable Joel Biggie Matiza urged motorists to obey road rules to avoid unnecessary loss of lives.

However, motorists have been urged take personal responsibility by checking the roadworthiness of their vehicles before they embark on long journeys back from the Easter holiday as it comes to an end.
