Several passengers were injured and taken to the hospital following an accident involving a Kombi travelling from BF and Mzilikazi township to the City Centre and a small car with two passengers at the corner of First Ave and Herbert Chitepo in Bulawayo Tuesday afternoon.

The driver of the small car failed to give way and collided with a Kombi full of passengers resulting in the Kombi veering off the road and smashing into a dura wall. The driver of the Kombi ran away leaving injured passengers struggling to come out of his Kombi. It is believed he had no driver's licence and appeared very
young.

The Kombi driver wasn't on the wrong but to run away from an accident is a serious crime. I believe it's high time to go hard on Kombi owners who give young, inexperienced and unlicensed drivers to carry passengers. Simple confiscate their Kombis.
