Gweru Disaster

Gweru river disaster search yields nothing as 4 bodies not being found. Six people were allegedly swept away by floods while trying to cross the Gweru River bridge along the Gweru-Matobo Road on Sunday.

The search unit recovered two bodies on Monday, from a vehicle that was swept away trying to cross the Gweru River. Search efforts by the Zimbabwe Republic Police’s sub-aqua unit and the Gweru City Council to retrieve bodies of people swept away by a flooded river in Gweru since Monday have yielded nothing.

Midlands’ provincial police spokesperson Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko yesterday said there were no further recoveries. “Only two bodies were recovered on Monday, but there have not been any further recoveries,” Mahoko said.

“We have been relying on the person who reported the matter to police that he saw six people in the car. The search unit was relying on that information to search for the remaining four bodies,” he said, adding that it was difficult to verify if indeed there were six people in the vehicle as no one had come to the police to report missing persons.
