Eight people died and three others were seriously injured in a road accident at Buharahara village in Geita on Thursday. Mwanza regional police commander, Jamal Rwambow, said the fatal accident happened when two passenger-laden cars collided head-on along Geita-Mwanza road.

"It's a grisly accident that was actually not supposed to happen," Mr Rwambow said, adding that the spot contained no dangerous features as it was a flat tarmac road.

Blaming the accident on reckless driving and overspeeding, Mr Rwambow called on passengers to report drivers, who drive recklessly.
