HARARE – Two people died on Tuesday during a fitness test after applying to be trainee security officers for the Zimbabwe Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ).

The two men, who have not been named, were taking part in a road run in Harare when they collapsed, CAAZ spokeswoman Anna-Julia Hungwe said in a statement.

“It is with deep sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce that during the recruitment exercise two potential male candidates suffered some medical casualties as a result of the road run. The deceased passed on at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals where they had been ferried to receive medical care,” the airports company said.
