Parents from Plumtree High Schools have come together in donating school stationery and
accessories to learners who lost all their goods in a fire when the car they were travelling in had an
accident and burst into flames.
Nyarai Nechiyonjeka from Plumtree High School Committee confirmed the donation saying the boys
lost everything and needed to go back to school.
“Our boys lost everything as their trunks were burnt beyond repair. However parents from Plumtree
High school are assisting the learners by replacing the lost goods. We really appreciate the good job
they are doing. May the good Lord further award them more in all they do in future,” she said.
The boys lost everything when a Toyota Radius, carrying five passengers from Victoria Falls to
Plumtree school had an accident on January 6 at around 2pm.
According to the Matebeleland North police spokes Person Inspector Glory Banda, Ezekiel Mupamba
aged 40 of Airport Victoria Falls was driving towards Bulawayo road going to Plumtree Schools.
“Upon reaching the 130km peg along the road, he lost control of the vehicle which veered off the
road before it overturned and landed on its wheel and caught fire,” he said.
Six passengers including the driver were injured and were referred to St Luke’s hospital. Two were
students going to Plumtree High school while the other two were going to Empandeni High School
and two were elders.
Police continue to appeal to all drivers to drive with caution since it is rainy season therefore they
should avoid speeding which can cause accidents.
