“A combi fell into the Mbalue river at the bridge at around 9pm last night.

“The commuter omnibus was coming from Bulawayo. Information on casualties(if any) is not yet available.”

Meanwhile, the Meteological Services Department has warned of heavy rains countrywide, urging people to be cautious.
