Tynwald High School Bus Driver Arrested | Report

The driver of the Tynwald High School bus that was involved in a fatal road accident in Nyanga last month has been arrested, a Sunday Mail report claims.

Machimbidzofa Chamunorwa was picked up by Nyanga police in Harare on Tuesday after being on the run for close to three weeks.

He was reportedly arrested in Harare where he was going around offering condolences to the parents of the deceased.

MacMillan Mutusva, one of the parents of the deceased, was quoted as saying:

The driver had been in hiding and nobody knew about his whereabouts.

He never showed himself after the horrific incident; he would send his brother and lawyers.

Chamunorwa reportedly only surfaced after the school head froze his salary.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson for Harare Province, Inspector Luckmore Chikanza, said they are yet to receive reports of the arrest.

The Tynwald High School bus was involved in a fatal accident in Juliusdale, Nyanga on Friday, 14 October 2022 around 7 PM, with reports suggesting that the driver was speeding and failed to negotiate a sharp curve.

Six pupils, five female and one male, died from head injuries after the bus overturned and landed on its roof near Pine Tree Hotel at the 75km peg along the Rusape-Nyanga Road.

The pupils who perished in the accident are Anesuishe Hove (14) of Bluffhill in Harare; Beyonce Guyo (15) of Madokero, Harare; Anita Manyuka (16) of Tynwald Harare; Destiny Dziva (14) of Avondale Harare; Kimberly Tarisai Mutusva (15) of Chitepo Heights, Harare and Craig Madanhire (age unknown), a male juvenile.
