You hike the toll fees, you fail to upgrade the roads. Now the government have all the money, the people are dying. Who shall speak sence to you leadership of Zimbabwe. Can someone begin to care and dualise this road. I know you will start to say that it was driver negligence. Till when shall you not account and take responsibility of this kind of deaths and human loss of income. Really this is a National road that looks like you are in the location. A major trading route for your country. The most busy road in Southern Africa in terms of trade. My heart is sore for the people who are perishing. ZIm government is responsible. But do they care? God will answer our prayers one day. One by one you shall all perish until a more responsible people govern this land.
