The Gweru District Civil Protection Unit working with the police sub-aqua unit and other private players has managed to retrieve two bodies of six people who were swept away together in their car while trying to cross the flooded Gweru River yesterday morning.
It also turned out that the car in which the six were traveling was an Isuzu twin cab, not a Toyota Hilux, as earlier reported.
The Isuzu twin cab which was also missing since yesterday was also found today in the afternoon with the water levels beginning to decline.
Midlands provincial police spokesperson Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko said the search was continuing.
”The search party has so far managed to retrieve two bodies and we are continuing with the efforts to locate the remaining four, we will give an update,” he said.
