HARARE – Zebra Kiss and Rimbi bus drivers who caused a fatal road accident early this year along the Harare-Nyamapanda Highway have been jailed.

 

Mutoko Magistrate Mr Elijah Sibanda slapped Zebra Kiss driver Mika Makwara with a two-year jail sentence – his driver’s license has since been cancelled.

 

The Rimbi driver, Misheck Penyai was jailed for 30 months.

 

The two were convicted of reckless driving.

 

The fatal accident occurred on January 12 this year.

 

Penyai, who was driving the Rimbi bus, tried to overtake the Zebra Kiss bus and hit the rear end of a tipper truck which was travelling towards Nyamapanda.

 

However, the video that circulated on social media and the police investigations revealed that the buses were racing each other.
