At least two Tanzanian soldiers were killed and 20 others injured on Thursday after their vehicle veered off the road and overturned in the East African nation’s Southern highland region of Katavi, said an official.
The Katavi region acting medical officer, Lameck Mdengo, said the vehicle carrying army officers with the Tanzania People’s Defense Forces overturned in the Katavi National Park.
Mdenga said most of the injured army officers suffered broken limbs and doctors were working round the clock to save their lives.
“Some of the seriously injured victims have been transferred to Kigoma region hospital for specialised treatment.
“The soldiers were on their routine duties when the horrible accident occurred,” Mdenga said.
