Double tragedy as man dies on the spot after vehicle carrying brother’s corpse collided with an oncoming car
A Zimbabwean family suffered a double tragedy as they had to bury two brothers in the same week.
It was gathered that one of the siblings, Edward Manyani who was accompanying his deceased brother’s body from South Africa was killed when the hearse was involved in a head-on collision.
According to The Mirror, the horrific accident reportedly happened at Nyabongwe Bus Stop near Buffalo Range in Chiredzi on Friday.
Masvingo Provincial Police Spokesperson, Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa, said Edward was accompanying his brother Peter Manyani’s body from Johannesburg when the hearse from Solace Funeral Services encroached into the right lane resulting in a head-on collision with an oncoming car.
Edward died on the spot while six other passengers in the hearse were seriously injured and admitted to a hospital.
Four of the victims are said to be in critical condition while two are stable.
Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Republic Police has since arrested the driver of the hearse, a South African national by the name of Legoko Sabata Goliath Francis (31).
Legoko Sabata Goliath Francis was charged with culpable homicide.
