TWO more people died yesterday in separate road accidents bringing the holiday death toll to 88.
In a statement, national police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi urged the public to be cautious on the country’s roads.
“Eighty eight people have died this year as compared to 81 last year, while 630 people have been injured as compared to 487 recorded last year,” Nyathi said.
Police have since impounded 2608 vehicles and have issued out 111 066 tickets for various offences.
“As the new year draws closer, the Zimbabwe Republic Police would like to urge the travelling public to continue exercising caution and safeguarding life on the road,” Nyathi said in a statement.
Police roadblocks have been mounted along most major highways.
Meanwhile, Nyathi said police were still appealing to the public to assist with information which may lead to the identification and establish leads to a case in which a human head with a right cheek, half chin, right eye, full nose, right upper, lower jaw and protruding tongue was found lying at the centre of Mabvure-Masiyarwa Road in Kutama on December 25 2014.
