Army truck kills 3 Cyclone Ida survivors

An Army lorry carrying relief food to victims of Cyclone Idai in Chimanimani Thursday afternoon developed a mechanical fault while moving uphill and reportedly ploughed into people who were waiting for food aid.

So far three people have died while several others were injured.

The army truck was carrying food from Mutare.

“The army truck was trying to go uphill to a central point when the brakes developed a fault and it ploughed into people. This is terrible as death has followed people again,” said source.

Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) spokesperson, Lieutenant-Colonel Alphios Makotore, confirmed the accident.
