Woman Dies, Five Injured After CAG Bus Ploughs Into Kombi

A Gokwe-bound CAG bus rammed into the back of a kombi that was travelling in the same direction along the Gokwe-Siyabuwa road, killing a female passenger on the spot while five others were injured.

Midlands Provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko confirmed the accident which occurred on Wednesday morning.

He said the driver of a kombi which was travelling to Gokwe reduced speed intending to turn right at an intersection when it was hit in the back by the bus which was also headed towards Gokwe town. Said Insp. Mahoko:

The bus which was being driven by one Rufaro Charangwa (42) rammed into the back of the kombi, killing a female passenger on the spot.

Five other people in the kombi were injured and were taken to Gokwe District Hospital.

@BUSH_LAWYER
may you kindly find out what happened to MHUNGA! i think it was banned, licence revoked following a series of accidents.

this CAG is now heading there, last year an AVM-DAF CAGbus contracted under ZUPCO registered Fleet #209 hit, dragged & killed a police woman in bulawayo, thats very dangerous of it.

vamwe tichiona tototi aka chekeresa officer to cleanse his busses from the hands of police. all scenes of accidents are attended thats true but such decisions of revoking the operating licence come after a public out-cry!!

WHILE I MAY SEEM TO BE SUPPORTING CAG BUS SERVICES COMPANY, I AM STATING THE LEGAL POSITION. A BUS COMPANY IS NOT BANNED BECAUSE ITS BUSES HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN MANY ACCIDENTS. EACH ACCIDENT IS INVESTIGATED SEPARATELY.

WHEN A BUS OR ANY VEHICLE IS INVOLVED IN A FATAL ACCIDENT, POLICE ATTEND THE ACCIDENT SCENE IN CONJUNCTION WITH VEHICLE INSPECTORATE DEPARTMENT (VID) OR THAT BUS IS TOWED TO VID FOR EXAMINATION.

LET US LOOK PARTICULARLY AT THIS GOMWE ACCIDENT. THE BUS RAMMED IN THE BACK OF A COMBI. NORMALLY THAT HAPPENS AFTER THE VEHICLE INFRONT WILL HAVE APPLIED BREAKS WITHOUT WARNING. OR THE VEHICLE WHICH IS FOLLOWING BEHIND HAS NO PROPER BRAKING SYSTEM OR WAS TOO CLOSE BEHIND. THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED IN THIS ACCIDENT.

IN MOST CASES THE DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE BEHIND IS CHANGED. IN THIS CASE THE CAG DRIVER IS MOST LIKELY TO BE CHARGED.

POLICE WILL ALSO LOOK INTO WHETHER THE DRIVER HAD PREREQUISITE LICENCE TO DRIVE THE BUS. THEY WILL ALSO LOOK INTO WHETHER THE COMPANY IS NOT OVERWORKING ITS DRIVERS.

YOURS SINCERELY
