Rare tragedy unfolds: 2 bikers killed as motorbikes collide head-on


Tragic head-on motorcycle collision claims two lives

In a rare and devastating incident, two motorcyclists carrying passengers tragically lost their lives in a head-on collision at an intersection near London Stores. The Acting Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Wiseman Chinyoka, confirmed the heart-wrenching accident.

According to Assistant Inspector Chinyoka, the collision occurred when one of the motorcyclists, identified as Silent Faro, failed to yield to the other motorcyclist, Richard Shorwa. Faro, who was travelling from a feeder road, neglected to give right of way to Shorwa, who was approaching from a different feeder road. The collision took place in close proximity to London Stores.

“Richard Shorwa (26) was riding an unregistered red Lifan motorbike, while Silent Faro was riding an unregistered blue motorcycle. Shorwa was travelling along Nyarumvurwe gravel road towards London Stores with one passenger on board. Faro was cycling along an unnamed feeder road towards Nyarumvurwe main gravel road intending to cross the main road leading to Nyanga.

“On approaching an intersection of the unnamed road, Faro, who was on the feeder road, failed to give way to Shorwa, which resulted in a collision at the intersection. Due to the collision impact, all the parties were seriously injured and were rushed to Bonda Mission Hospital where the bikers both died on admission,” he said.

Assistant Inspector Chinyoka urged members of the public, particularly motorists and cyclists, to exercise due care and caution when on the road.
