LATEST: Zimbabwe warriors aeroplane develops technical problems mid-air


Warriors were involved in a mid-air scare when the plane they were on experienced “unexpected turbulence” on their way back to Zimbabwe.

Zifa communication manager Xolisani Gwasela says the team is safe and has dismissed rumours of a plane crash. The incident is believed to have happened between the countries of Sierra Leon and Ghana. Writing on his Facebook page, Gwesela said

Hi, guys. Warriors travelling from Liberia (including myself) are safe and sound. It was just unexpected turbulence between Sierra Leon and Ghana (around Cote D’Ivoire).

This is very normal with planes especially when the weather is bad. Our plane never crash landed in Accra as this is part of its route. We arrive in Harare at 3 pm. Merci.
