Tynwald High School Bus Disaster: Teacher Dies As Driver Who Was On The Run Gets Arrested
An Upper 6 teacher who was part of the Tynwald High School Nyanga bus disaster, has died.
H-Metro reports that the deceased, Chamunorwa Rukwanha has been battling for life at Avenues Clinic following the accident that claimed six Tynwald High School students along Nyanga Road recently.
Meanwhile Sunday Mail also reports that the school bus driver Machimbidzofa Chamunorwa who was on the run has been picked up by Nyanga police in Harare on Tuesday.
Sources privy to the development told the publication that the driver was arrested in Harare where he was going around offering condolences to parents of the deceased.
“The driver had been in hiding and nobody knew about his whereabouts,” said Mr MacMillan Mutusva, one of the parents of the deceased.
It is believed the driver only surfaced after the school head froze his salary.
“He never showed himself after the horrific incident; he would send his brother and lawyers,” added Mr Mutusva.
Tynwald High School headmaster Mr Kenias Matimba was not reachable for comment.
Harare Province police spokesperson, Inspector Luckmore Chikanza, said they are yet to receive reports of the arrest.
