At least 32 people were killed in a car crash on Saturday night in Maputo Province, southern Mozambique.

Dozens were also injured in the crash.

The crash, involving one cargo truck and a bus, occurred on national EN1 road at the Maluana administrative post in the district of Manhica, about 80 kilometers far from the capital city Maputo.

The driver of the bus, who survived the crash, made an irregular overtaking at high speed and lost control over his vehicle, which then crashed with other cars.

Thirty-one people, including a two-year-old child, were pronounced dead on the scene.

The 32nd victim, a 38-year-old female, succumbed to her injuries in Manhica District Hospital, where the other injured were taken to.

Officials lamented the loss of lives and called for a ban on transport company Nhacale, which the passenger bus belongs to. It had been suspended once in 2017.
