MIDLANDS – Senior Zimbabwe Prison and Correctional Services chaplain at Mutimurefu in Masvingo, Cleopas Mhlanga broke into tears at the Gweru Magistrates' Court on Wednesday when he was asked to describe the skulls of his workmates that were crushed during an accident at  Boterekwa, Shurugwi in September last year.
Two people were killed in the accident when they were thrown out of a Mazda BT50 truck along the Boterekwa Hills Road in Shurugwi as they travelled to the funeral of a colleague in Bulawayo.
The court was told that the driver was cruising at 160km/hr on the steep slopes of Boterekwa in Shurugwi.
Mhlanga broke down when he was asked by Prosecutor Bernard Nyoni to slowly explain how all the passengers' bodies appeared soon after the accident. Mhlanga said the first person he saw was Happison Sithole who was thrown 15m away from the vehicle.
When he tried to explain how the second deceased appeared, Mhlanga broke down into tears and the court could not continue.
He was giving evidence during the trial of Mashonganyika Mashonganyika (42) a Superintendent at Mutimurefu who is facing culpable homicide charges following the accident.
Mashonganyika was driving the vehicle. Magistrate Musaiona Shortgame is hearing the case.
Mhlanga told the court that the accused was travelling at about 160km/hr in Boterekwa sharp curves with eight passengers on board where he lost control of the vehicle and it overturned before landing on its roof. The accident resulted in six passengers including the driver being critically injured and two died on the spot.
Injured passengers were taken to Parirenyatwa hospital and bodies of the deceased were taken to Shurugwi District Hospital where a post mortem was conducted.
