Many people have reacted to the Tynwald High school bus disaster, leaving fans imagining how their families reacted and how they are coping. This is a sad moment for the whole country after six children from Tynwald High School lost their lives in a road accident. A valid police statement said the bus driver failed to negotiate a curve along the Rusape Nyanga road, and the bus veered off the road. It is said that the bus then overturned and landed on its roof. Thirty-nine other learners and staff members were injured and admitted to a local hospital.
With such news spreading across the nation, many families are mourning their kids, and some are battling with the medical bills of those injured. Naturally, we know how one feels when one loses a family member but here is what some of the family members had to say. Some family members had touching memories of their deceased children a few hours before the tragic incident. All this is touching and painful but here is a detailed reaction from most families.
Reactions from the Tynwald families after the tragic Tynwald bus crash
A father to one of the deceased children had a lot to say, leaving the whole nation in tears. A few hours before the accident, one of the girls who lost her life had a chat with her daughter. The father said they spoke at large with her daughter as he gave her goodies. He said she reminded him of her dream to form a company with her other two friends. What a beautiful moment he had with her daughter; he never knew it was the last time. Her daughter, together with her two friends, all perished in the accident. This showed how much grief is in the families of the kids who lost their lives.
Another close family member had a lot of pain within themselves as they aired out their feeling. Fortunately, his niece survived the accident but had a lot to say about the treatment they had in the hospital. He said they were admitted to Nyanga hospital but had nothing. They were transferred to Mutare, where she got assistance but later decided to bring them to Harare for what they considered proper medication. We continue to pray for the health of those who survived injuries.
Indeed, this is a lesser version of the Mhunga-Masvingo teachers’ college bus disaster, where 36 people lost their lives. Almost twenty years later, the event still traumatised families and survivors. We hope they remember their departed well and heal as fast as possible.
