ZUPCO Bus Overturns During

A Zimbabwe United Passengers Company (ZUPCO) bus overturned near Mushagashe in Masvingo on Monday morning when its driver allegedly attempted to overtake a small vehicle that was also trying to overtake an Inter-Africa bus.

The small vehicle was sandwiched between the two busses racing in road lanes meant for just two vehicles.

The busses were reportedly racing for passengers at Mushagashe. The small vehicle did not stop after the accident occurred.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson in Masvingo Province Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the incident to The Mirror.

The publication reported sources as saying there were no serious injuries following the incident.

Passengers who sustained minor injuries were rushed to Masvingo Provincial Hospital. Said the source:

The ZUPCO bus driver was speeding and he tried to overtake at the same time the small vehicle was also attempting to overtake the Inter Africa bus.

ZUPCO is not a driving school my friend

How did you, he was a leaner ZUPCO drivers are given,a Permit to drive papa, so maybe he,was just learning the ROAD

it is true that these buses indege baba dont mess out with CUMMINS ENGINES
- High Power output
- Very efficient (less consumption high speed)

worse the CUMMINS L300/360 iri pama DRAGON ayo mmm ma1 wangu

Zupco might be making a mistake yekungo tora a driver just because ane Class 1 DL bt i think they must now start to train drivers the actual bus he is to drive

Travelled a long distance journey with Zupco last week.Realised half way thru the journey that the driver was a learner as he disembarked just before a roadblock and let the real driver take over.
