127 people have died in road accidents since the 15th of this month, marking a 100% increase in deaths compared to the same period last year.

In just ten days it has become one of the bloodiest festive season in recent years.

On Monday, eight people died when a commuter bus overturned in Mhondoro along the highway to Harare.

Among the dead were six people from the same family.

Police spokesperson Superintendent Tinaye Matake said the driver of the commuter omnibus lost control resulting in the vehicle veering off the road and overturning.

Six people died on the spot while two others died on admission at St Michael Hospital.

The Mhondoro accident occurred within 24 hours after another accident claimed 18 lives in Hauna in Manicaland.

No explanation has been given as to how the truck which was carrying 63 people travelled from Harare to Hauna passing through police road blocks with no action being taken.

Meanwhile, police have identified all bodies of the victims of the Hauna national disaster.

The names are:
Blessing Dumbura
Betty Masocha
Celeb Nyakuwawa
Rose Goro-Mutasa
Ester Madzikire
Susan Linda Madzikanda
Raymond Eggnson
Ernest Marowa
Stella Danda
Justine Chingore Hamuzofi
