Malawians injured in bus accident in SA
Scores of Malawians suffered injuries when a Nyali Luxury coach they were travelling in side swiped with another vehicle in South Africa.
Zimbabwean media reported that the accident happened in the wee hours of Monday outside Musina town in the rainbow nation and it involved a Nyali bus which was travelling from Johannesburg going to Malawi via Zimbabwe.
Witnesses said several passengers including the bus driver suffered broken limbs but no death had been reported.
“The injured have been taken to Musina hospital for treatment. We arrived at the scene shortly after the incident. No deaths were reported yet, though many passengers incurred serious injuries,” a witness said.
He added that the bus trailer side-swiped with a small vehicle which was travelling in the opposite direction and it veered off the road and landed on its side, partially blocking the road.
Efforts to contact Nyali bus offices in Malawi and Johannesburg were unsuccessful.
