Zimbabwe Losing $400 Million A Year Due To Road Accidents: Gumbo
Speaking at the handover of an ambulance at Makuti Clinic, Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Joram Gumbo said Zimbabwe is losing about $406 million a year due to road traffic accidents.
Gumbo said this amounts to 3% of Zimbabwe’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). 1 041 people have died in road accidents between January and June this year, compared to 830 people during the same period last year. This represents a 12,5 percent increase. Said Gumbo:
Zimbabwe is estimated to be losing about $406 million every year due to road traffic accidents. This is almost three percent of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which is estimated at $14 billion. It is sad to note that from January to June 2018, Zimbabwe has lost 1 041 people due to road traffic accidents, up from 830 people killed during the same period last year.Feedback
