Miss Tourism Zim models involved in Vumba bus accident
Nine out of the 19 Miss Tourism Zimbabwe contestants who were in boot camp preparing for the national finals slated for Montclair Hotel in Nyanga this Saturday have been injured in a bus accident that occurred in Vumba last night.
The models who had been in the Eastern Highlands for four days were on their way to Eden Lodge in Vumba where they were scheduled to sleep.
Miss Tourism Zimbabwe licence –holder, Sarah Mpofu, said the ladies were stable and nine have been admitted and are waiting for further tests and X-rays.
“The girls have been under observation at Murambi Garden hospital and all are stable. There are some injuries, but no death recorded. We’re now making arrangements to have the models transferred to Harare hospitals for further treatment", she said.
“We believe they were all affected, including those who are not physically hurt so they’re all in hospital under observation. It’s sad that such an unfortunate event transpired, however we thank God because the accident was not fatal”, she added.
It has been reported that the driver lost control of the bus ferrying the models, near Leopard Rock Hotel after failing to negotiate a curve as the roads were slippery because of the rains. An official police report is yet to be broadcasted.
The OyOsMusic family was deeply saddened by the news and would like to wish the models a speedy recovery as we continue to thank God for the gift of lives protected and pray for divine healing.
