Tree Falls On Car In Harare

An old tree has fallen on a car right next to Nando’s on Samora Machel in Harare, on Friday.

This the latest in a bunch of trees around the city which have keep falling. A lot of these trees are scores of years old and their core is generally weak. That is what happens when they get old.

You would think that the city council would be taking a closer look at this and making sure that this sort of thing isn’t taking place. It will only be a matter of time before the tree falls on someone.

Just last year the iconic Mbuya Nehanda tree suffered a similar fate when with just a wee-bit of a touch from workmen, it too went down.
