Three people died in Harare’s Glen Norah B suburb today after the trailer of a bus that was coming from South Africa un-hooked and hit two school children and a male adult.

Zimbabwe Republic Police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi told ZBC News that one of the children and the male adult died on the spot while the other child died on admission at a city hospital.

Chief Superintendent Nyathi urged operators of buses and haulage trucks not to let their vehicles pass through residential areas picking and dropping passengers and goods.

He said bus companies and haulage truck operators should comply with the country’s Road Traffic Act which prohibits such vehicles to venture into residential areas to avoid loss of life and properties.
