    Mulaudzi bus service.


    MWENEZI - Isaac Mukunura (51) who was involved in an accident thereby killing two passengers while driving a Mulaudzi Bus travelling from South Africa to Harare has been slapped with an 18-month jail term.
    Mukanura also had his driver’s licence cancelled.
    He appeared before Mwenezi Resident Magistrate Honesty Musiiwa last Thursday facing charges of culpable homicide. Three months of his sentence were suspended for 5 years on condition that he does not commit a similar offence.
    On April 18, 2019, at around 130pm Mukunura had 40 passengers on board and upon reaching the 137 km peg along Masvingo- Beitbridge Road he tried to overtake a Volvo haulage truck horse with a trailer.
    The bus driver hit the right corner of the rear trailer with the front left side of the bus. A metal lining from the truck was dislocated and it cut through the bus from the front to the middle.
    Two passengers were killed and three others were injured and ferried to Neshuro District Hospital for treatment.
    Giving sentence, the magistrate said Mukunura had violated section 64 of the road traffic act thus his licence was cancelled and banned from driving any motor vehicle for two years.
