Chief dies in car crash


MASVINGO — Acting Chief Ndanga, Simon Charinda (60), died in a car crash over the weekend after his B1800 pick-up truck rammed into another truck at the 18-kilometre peg along the Masvingo-Mutare Highway.

Masvingo provincial police spokesperson Inspector Tinaye Matake said the accident occurred around 10:30am on Saturday.

Matake said the chief died on admission at Masvingo General Hospital while a passenger in his car, Elisha Revesai, died on the spot.

“The chief was coming from his homestead and the accident happened as he connected to the main tarred road. His car was rammed into by another pick-up being driven by Tasunungurwa Manyangadze, which had six people, including the driver,” he said.

Matake said the passengers in the other car escaped with minor injuries.
