By Staff Reporter| A truck belonging to the JJ Zambia business went up in flames yesterday afternoon.
The accident happened at around 4pm at just before the Headlands urban centre. The gonyet was coming from Mozambique and driving towards Zambia past Headlands.
The driver was carrying 30 tonnes of fertilizer taking it to Zambia. Some of the fertilizer was burnt up while the rest was looted by villagers.
“The villagers had an early Christimas,” a source told ZimEye.com Sunday morning.
The driver can be seen in video footage being streamed by ZimEye.com struggling to come out of the vehicle. People passing then rush towards the truck and start shouting: Mudara iwe buda umo.” He struggles for a while but later on manages to escape.
