It is unfortunate to report that yet another incident has occurred involving a Zebra Kiss bus, as it has become a frequent occurrence lately.
According to credible sources, a Zebra Kiss bus travelling from Cape Town to Harare on Wednesday was involved in an accident in Mutare.
The accident occurred when the bus driver lost control while navigating a curve at Mutare Teachers College, in an attempt to avoid colliding with a truck. Fortunately, there were no fatalities, but ten individuals were injured at the time of writing.
Pictures taken at the scene of the accident are disheartening, depicting a Zebra Kiss bus lying on its side, with a truck resting on its rear end. The front window of the bus was destroyed during the crash, and passengers had to scramble to find their way out of the overturned vehicle.
The aftermath of the accident paints a grim picture, with scattered parcels and debris from the trailer of the bus left in ruins all over the accident scene.

Interestingly, another incident involving a commuter omnibus occurred on the same day, not far from the location of the Zebra Kiss bus accident. Thankfully, the five individuals involved in the commuter omnibus incident only suffered minor injuries.
Earlier this month, thirteen cross-border traders were fortunate to survive with serious injuries when a Zebra Kiss bus they were travelling in from Zambia was involved in an accident along the Harare-Chirundu highway. The thirteen were taken to Chinhoyi Provincial Hospital for medical attention, while forty-three others including the bus crew sustained minor injuries.
Eyewitnesses alleged that the driver of the bus was speeding and lost control, leading to the accident that occurred at Maningwa Mountain, where the bus swerved left before landing on its side
