Police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba confirmed the accident and warned public transport drivers to exercise caution.

A witness said the driver of a Harare-bound kombi encroached into the opposite lane, as he attempted to overtake, resulting in a head-on collision, which severely damaged both
vehicles.

Of the injured, eight were taken to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, three to Murewa District Hospital and two to Musami Mission Hospital.

Meanwhile, names of the deceased are being withheld until their next of kin have been informed.
