A Mapanzure High School Bus was involved in a road accident Tuesday night while carrying 65 ZANU PF women from Masvingo to a cooking competition organized by the First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa in Vic Falls.
Masvingo Mirror reports that the bus which is valued at US$150 000 was badly damaged to be repaired.
The publication says one woman was seriously injured in the accident, two others escaped with minor injuries while the rest are injury-free.
ZANU PF Masvingo Women’s League provincial chairperson Alginia Samson confirmed the accident that happened at the 35km peg along Masvingo – Mashava Road.
The women were later booked at Maponga Lodge, a few hundred metres from where the accident happened.
The cooking competition is one of the many projects that the First Lady has been carrying out in her outreach into disadvantaged communities.
School buses are bought by parents through the School Development Committees at great cost and headmasters or school authorities with political interests seek favours from ZANU PF by hiring out busses to the party for free.
Meanwhile, there is a ruling made by Justice Joseph Mafusire at the High Court in Masvingo barring political parties from using school buses, taking school children to rallies or using school premises and furniture.
