KWEKWE – Government has paid funeral expenses for five Munyati Primary School teachers who died in a horrific road accident when a Toyota Aqua they were traveling in collided head-on with a truck along Harare – Bulawayo road in Kwekwe on Friday.
Speaking at Kwekwe Doves Funeral Parlour on Sunday afternoon, Minister of State for Midlands Province, Owen Ncube said that Government accorded the five teachers state assisted funerals.
The deceased are Mitchel Maticha, Tsungirirai Joe, Sithabile Nothando Moyo, Everjoice Ngwenya and Lesley Mugwidi.
He said he approached President Mnangagwa for the assistance and this was granted immediately. He thanked the President and his wife for sending condolence messages to the bereaved.
“We have lost our Government employees as Midlands and the whole country is mourning our teachers who perished in a road traffic accident.
“We appreciate President Mnangagwa whom we asked to assist us. Everything will be done by Government until we bury our relatives in Midlands,” said Ncube.
Midlands Provincial Education Director (PED) Jameson Machimbira said the death of the five teachers was a great loss to the nation and the gap that they left will be difficult to fill.
“We thank Government for the State assisted-funeral,” said Machimbira.
