Tragedy struck the Chinhoyi University of Technology, CUT, last night (Wednesday) when a male student was run over by the institution’s bus.

The student was initially taken to Chinhoyi Provincial hospital where he was further transferred to Parirenyatwa hospital in Harare Metropolitan province.

However, he died on his way to Parirenyatwa hospital.

Police spokesperson for Mashonaland West Inspector Clemence Mabgweazara confirmed the tragedy.
