Zanu PF Zvishavane has joined the nation in mourning the victims of the Brooklyn bus disaster that occurred along the Gwanda Beitbridge highway, amid indications that those from the town were the most affected.

The fatal accident plunged the mining town into mourning with funerals only separated by distant houses.

Zanu PF Zvishavane District Officer, Mr Tosten Chilongo said he could not believe the way he lost his wife, Maria Gorrette.

“I accompanied her to the bus and little did I know it was our last moment together,” he said.

One house from the Chilongos, there is another funeral wake, and the bereaved family said it is a pity to have lost a breadwinner.

A full list of those who perished in the accident will be released upon the conclusion of DNA tests in Bulawayo.

Meanwhile, cross boarder traders have been urged to stand with the bereaved families during this hard time.
