MDC-T President, Mr Morgan Tsvangirai said the death of the three party activists was not a loss to their families and loved ones alone, but a blow to the nation.

“We have never witnessed such a tragedy as a party. My heart bleeds with you all. We are having a difficult time that is loaded with pain. It is God’s journey and there is nothing much we can do about it,” said Mr Tsvangirai.

Speaking at the same occasion, MDC-T Vice President, Ms Thokozani Khupe urged mourners to be strong and pray for other car crash victims in hospital.

“Our hearts are heavy with grief. Let’s pray for those left behind especially the families of the deceased. I also urge you to pray for those in hospital who were also involved in this tragedy. Their situation is bad and requires your prayers,” Ms Khupe said.

Ms Khupe’s remarks follow her visit to the surviving crash victims at Parirenyatwa Hospital on Tuesday.
