Gweru – Gweru Firebrigade and the Police have abandoned the search for a Toyota Hilux swept off at the flooded Matobo Bridge together with its six occupants yesterday morning.
The vehicle was swept away by the flooded Gweru River a few kilometres from the city centre after the driver insisted on crossing.
Gweru mayor Josiah Makombe said local efforts were futile and the rescue team had decided to wait for a sub-acqua team which was expected last evening or early today.
Meanwhile rains continue to pound Gweru yesterday. https://masvingomirror.com
