Three people, one of them believed to be a Finland national are feared dead after a Cessna light aircraft they were traveling in crashed about 20kms south of Renco Mine in Masvingo South.

It is not clear when the Cessna-182 plane crashed at Chemanjenjere Hills in the Tokwane-Ngundu area.

Police have already secured the  wreckage of the plane while waiting for the Civil Aviation Authority team to arrive and initiate investigations into the cause of the crash.

Police recovered a Finnish identity card, Visa financial services card and a passport suggesting there were three passengers on board.

Sources at the scene said the plane appeared to be coming from Chiredzi adding that all the bodies of the occupants were decapitated making it hard to identify them.

MATTER OF FACT

Meanwhile we had earlier reported that the plane belonged to Executive Air Pvt Ltd of Harare. It has since been established that the plane does not belong to Executive Air Pvt Ltd and we sincerely apologize to the company for any inconvenience caused.

More details to follow.
