35 people dies 

At least 35 people died and 71 were injured in Zimbabwe when a bus carrying churchgoers to an Easter gathering veered off the road and landed in a gorge, police said Friday.

The bus was carrying members of a local Zion Christian Church who were traveling to an Easter meeting in the south-eastern town of Chipinge.

“Indications suggest that the bus was overloaded,” he said. Buses in Zimbabwe typically have an average capacity of 60 to 75 passengers.

“As church people, they should lead by example but instead they were traveling at night which we always discourage,” Nyathi said.

Road accidents are common in Zimbabwe during public holidays when the roads are often busier. Many roads are pock-marked with crater-like potholes, which also contributes to accidents.

That is the latest Foreign news today on 35 people dies.
