A couple escaped unhurt yesterday when an ageing Jacaranda tree fell on their car and damaged four other vehicles near Kaguvi Building.
The incident occurred when the driver opened the door soon after parking only for a tree branch to fall onto their vehicle door, damaging three other parked vehicles.
Onlookers urged City of Harare to cut all ageing Jacaranda trees saying a number of people have been injured and vehicles damaged.
“People’s lives are in danger because of these ageing trees,” said one onlooker.
“Recently four vendors were injured at corner Mazowe Street and Jason Moyo Avenue. Today four vehicles got damaged and the City Fathers are not taking action.
“It is worrying,” said the onlooker.
