A small aircraft chartered by Mozambican ports company Cornelder crashed near the Mozambique-Zimbabwe border, killing all six occupants, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Among the victims were four Green Motors Services (GMS) directors while the two crew members were a father and son.

According to NAN, Cornelder Mozambique, the company using the plane, is a private joint venture between Moçambique Ports and Railways (CFM) and Cornelder Holdings based in Rotterdam, Holland.

The company’s chairman, Adelino Mesquita, was named among the victims of the crash.

The four directors were reportedly on their way from Beira to attend a board meeting in Mutare.

Investigations to establish the cause of the accident are underway but preliminary investigations attribute the crash to bad weather.

The wreckage of the eight-seater plane and body parts of the victims were strewn all over the place near the mountain peak.

Police and army details from Mozambique are at the scene and efforts are underway to take the bodies to Mutare Provincial Hospital Mortuary for post moterms.
