Kwekwe stadium stampede

On 21 November 2014, a stampede occurred at Mbizo Stadium in Kwekwe, Zimbabwe, killing 11 and injuring 40 people.[1] Reuters reported that around 30,000 people attended a religious service officiated by Walter Magaya.[2] After the service, the crowd left toward a single exit in a stampede, killing four immediately; seven others were pronounced dead at hospital.[2] The Business Standard reported that the stampede was caused by police firing teargas after some of the crowd attempted to break off parts of the stadium wall to exit.[1]
