Panic as man collapses and dies on a ZUPCO bus. Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the incident. B-Metro reports that a man who only identified himself as Bothwell and was part of the passengers who witnessed the incident said Adaton Mugwindiri (60) boarded a Zupco bus near Ashy’s shops in Pumula South suburb intending to go to town.

A 60-year-old man has collapsed and died on a Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) bus. Along the way, Mugwindiri started complaining of stomach ache and vomited. aid Bothwell:

He stopped vomiting and collapsed. One of the passengers informed the driver about the incident. He stopped the bus and checked him and discovered he had died. The Zupco driver drove to a police station and reported the matter. Mugwindiri’s body was ferried to a mortuary.

The late Mugwindiri’s son, Manley Mugwindiri (24), told B-Metro that his father was suffering from heart disease and had been on medication since 2019.

This is not the first time for a passenger to die on the bus. In January this year, a passenger aboard a Devine Star Logistics bus which was coming from Johannesburg, South Africa, died in Beitbridge. The man, who was identified as Shingai Ndlovu, was pronounced dead on arrival at Beitbridge Hospital.

In December last year, a Zimbabwean woman died at the Beitbridge border post while waiting on a bus after she had reportedly complained about feeling dizzy and of fatigue and asked fellow passengers to pray for her before she died.

The deaths have always sparked fears among fellow passengers who will be unsure whether the deaths are COVID-19 related or not.
