What happens ku police is that the people in a car are classified as driver and/ or passengers. Which means the Corolla had 1 driver and 5 passengers. The Axela had 1 driver and 1 passenger.
Thats 8 people all in all.

Thats how the police take their reports. Its also for insurance purposes. Uyo anga aine 5 passengers in a 4 passenger car if he had not died yaiita nyaya.
This classification is also why zvichinzi zvosungisa kuonekwa uri pa driver's seat but usiri a licensed one.

So sad the driver of the Corolla was my workmate at Blanket Mine here in Gwanda coming from Bulawayo where he had gone to spend the weekend with his family 😭😭😭😭😭. His Sister did perish too on the spot.
