    At least 40 killed after bus in Zimbabwe bursts into flames

    HARARE - At least 42 passengers have been confirmed dead, Zimbabwe police said Friday, after a suspected gas tank exploded on a bus, with pictures showing the burnt-out wreckage of the vehicle.

    "At the moment we know that more than 42 people died," police spokeswoman Charity Charamba told AFP after the accident late on Thursday, with state media reporting a gas tank belonging to a passenger was believed to have exploded.

    "Our police officers are at the scene," Charamba added.

    READ: 47 killed in Zimbabwe bus crash

    The state-owned Herald newspaper said on its Twitter feed that "it is suspected a gas tank belonging to one of the passengers caused the inferno in the bus.

    "Dozens have been confirmed dead and several others injured through burns."

    The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation published photographs showing the destroyed vehicle on a highway from the South African border crossing to the second city Bulawayo.

    Last week, 47 people were killed when two buses collided on a road between the capital Harare and the eastern town of Rusape.

    President Emmerson Mnangagwa said road safety had to be improved after that crash.

    Traffic accidents are common in Zimbabwe, where roads are riddled with potholes due to years of underfunding and neglect, and driving standards can be poor. 

    In June last year, 43 people were killed in a bus crash in the north, along the highway leading to neighbouring Zambia.

    JOHANNESBURG - Is the Economic Freedom Fighters making it easy for those that claim it's just a party of rabble-rousers?

    AfriForum has not one, but two cost orders against the party, that's this week alone.

    Since March last year, they have piled up five court orders.

    At the same time, renowned journalists Thandeka Gqubule and Anton Harber have given the EFF a week to prove their allegations that the pair were apartheid-era spies.

    The now-defunct Huffington Post South Africa published unverified information making this claim.

    The EFF asked the pair and other unnamed reporters to "confess and ask forgiveness" for allegedly being on apartheid disinformation campaign group Stratcom's payroll.

    However, these claims have come back to bite the party. 

    Do these court orders bring into question the EFF's credibility or is there a bigger plan at play by the party?

    Nelson Chamisa, the leader of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance, speaks during a press conference at the MDC headquarters in Harare.

    JOHANNESBURG - The leader of Zimbabwe's opposition MDC, Nelson Chamisa, says by threatening him with arrest President Mnangagwa's government is trying to destroy the party and cause chaos in the country.

    Chamisa turned down an invitation to testify before the Kgalema Mothlante Commission about the 1 August army killings of six people.

    Testifying before the Motlanthe Commission early this week Zimbabwe police chief Godwin Matanga alleged Chamisa incited streets violence that led to the killing of six people after losing the 30 July elections.

    But addressing journalists in Harare, Chamisa said his arrest won't remove the Zimbabwe peoples' will for change.

    “I would like to say crime does not rot like meat, the records are there to tell, and anytime he can be arrested,” said Matanga.

    Meanwhile, Chamisa said: “Tell you what, you can arrest Chamisa that's not arresting the problem. This nation is deeply divided. There was no need for a commission of inquiry if there was no crisis in this country. It tells you there's a crisis. We have deep-seated divisions in this country which cannot been resolved by this kind of tomfoolery tactics.”

    Chamisa said Mnangagwa's script is to make sure there are no forces to challenge him which is why the security forces have labelled the MDC as an enemy of the state and a terrorist organisation.

    READ: Zimbabwe opposition to declare Chamisa 'president'

    “To call us a terrorist organisation, where have you seen a terrorist organization with headquarters along the same road with Parliament of Zimbabwe? Where have you seen a terrorist organisation that will use placards to engage the government instead of using arms of war. We believe in democratic tools such as demonstrations. Where have you seen a terrorist organisation that believes in rallies? We've got rallies because those are democratic tools. We are not like ISIS, al-Shabaab or Boko Haram who have headquarters in the mountains, we have headquarters in this house because we believe in democracy,” he said.

    The MDC leader is mobilising nationwide protests over the worsening economic crisis in Zimbabwe.

    In the past few months the country has been hit by a serious economic meltdown which left it grappling with shortages of basic commodities, foreign currency, medicine and fuel.

    JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has cut off electricity to municipalities that owe them billions.

    The power utility took this drastic step with municipalities they supply directly that collect money from consumers but often fail to pay it over.

    READ: Eskom takes steps to secure coal supply

    Eskom's strategies have been unsuccessful in curbing a debt that now stands at R17-billion.

    Soweto alone owes R15-billion, and its residents consistently resist any attempts to force them to pay their power bills.
