Two people were seriously injured when a motorbike they were riding collided with a tractor at Forester D Estate in Mvurwi Mashonaland Central yesterday.

Sources privy to the development allege two men took a motorbike belonging to the farm foreman without his consent and crushed into a tractor that had no lights at all.

"Two men took mudhudhu waforomani ndokuufambisa visina mvumo vakasvikopinda muchipoko chetractor icho change chisina malights," said Osca Matola.

The two were rushed to Mvurwi hospital where one of them identified by Bulawayo24.com as Forget was referred to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals for better treatment.

In a related incident a couple from Mazowe Mine was allegedly hit by a vehicle at Concession intersection in Concession last night.

According to Tobias Kapale, Cosmas Chekami 54 together with his wife Galdencia Kapale 47 were hit by a vehicle in Concession and Galdencia is currently  admitted at Concession hospital.

"These motorbikes are becoming very dangerous my sister was hit together with her husband at Concession junction she is currently admitted at Concession hospital," he said.

Meanwhile, cases of motorbikes colliding with vehicles are prevalent in Mashonaland emanating from human error.

A member of the war veteran association Shambakumanja Shambakumanja denounced new farmers who cycle motorbikes without driving licences.

"These accidents are rampant because most new farmers are just riding without licences so at the end of the day an accident is recorded.

"Police should arrest these cyclists and a stiff purnishment should be implemented to those found wanting," bellowed the war veteran.
