Drivers urged to exercise caution

Public vehicle drivers have been urged to exercise caution on the roads.

The call comes after a bus accident that claimed five lives, injuring 44 others last evening on the Masvingo -Beitbridge highway.

Zimbabwe national police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said the accident involving an African-link coach occurred after the driver failed to negotiate a curve resulting in the bus overturning and landing on its roof.

He said reports indicate that the driver was speeding.

The names of the deceased are yet to be released as their next of keen are yet to be informed.
