Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) acting chief spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi said in a statement in Harare Thursday that on the same date last year, five people were killed in road traffic accidents nationwide.

 

“The ZRP would like to inform the nation that one person died in a fatal accident that was recorded on 28 December 2016, compared with five people who died in 2015. A ten-year old boy was struck and killed by a vehicle along the Harare-Bulawayo road at the 65th kilometre in Norton, Mashonaland West Province,” he said.

 

At least 70 road accidents which resulted in seven people being injured were also recorded on Wednesday while at least 45 defective vehicles were impounded, down from 122 road unworthy vehicles impounded on the same date last year.

 

Chief Supt Nyathi said about 8,074 people were arrested on Wednesday, up from 7,132 recorded during the same day last year. “Motorists are urged to drive safely and look out for other road users,” he said.
