Three people were killed while 11 others were injured after the kombi they were travelling in was involved in an accident along the Chivhu-Roy Road on Sunday.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson in Masvingo Province Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa said the accident occurred at the 68-kilometre peg. He said:

At around 6 pm on Sunday, a Toyota Hiace that was being driven by Innocent Damba (37) of Waterfalls burst the left rear tyre at the 68-kilometre peg along the Chivhu-Roy Road. The car had 13 passengers on board.

Damba lost control of the vehicle and it veered off the road and overturned several times landing on its right side.

Culpabke homicide simply mwana your actions resulted in the desth of a hukama being.. You did not intend to kill but due to carelessness someone lost a life. The courts will clear you if you prove that you are Innocent ega if the brakes failed. But if you overload your vehicle ehe you actially know the dangers of overloading then you have a case to answer

meaning driver aasina licence

Culpable homicide has nothing to do with licence..e fact that his car did cause e death of people-culpable homicide

If he has no licence-that would be another count .
Without licence he can't contest e count of Culpable homicide.

May e soul of e deceased rest in peace
