VICTORIA FALLS — Former Zimbabwe international striker Peter Ndlovu is expected to appear at the Victoria Falls Magistrate Courts today facing culpable homicide charges, a police source said yesterday.
Ndlovu, who was behind the wheel in a BMW X5 SUV which crashed at the 417km peg near Lupinyu Business Centre, Victoria Falls, leading to the death of his elder brother Adam Ndlovu (42) and Nomqhele Tshili (24), suffered serious injuries in the accident.
According to a police source in Victoria Falls, Peter came for indications at the scene of the accident on Sunday and was also seen at the Victoria Falls Magistrate Courts yesterday afternoon.
“Peter is expected to appear in court tomorrow (today). The culpable homicide docket has been completed,” said the source.
His lawyer Harrison Nkomo confirmed the development last night, but could not provide more details.
“Yes there is something like that, but I haven’t seen the summons,” he said.
Adam and Tshili died in the early hours of December 14 last year.
The Ndlovu brothers, who had left Bulawayo on Saturday night, were on their way to the resort town to take part in a friendly soccer match pitting Highlanders legends against the Victoria Falls Social Soccer League select team.
The match had been scheduled for Chinotimba Stadium.
Peter, arguably the greatest Warrior to date, led the national team to the Nations Cup finals in 2004 and 2006 before returning home after a lengthy and successful career in England and South Africa, to be the assistant coach of the senior national team.
He escaped with injuries on his legs, forehead and ribs. Adam cut his teeth at Highlanders in the early 1990s before playing for a number of European and South African clubs.
The brothers were part of the late Warriors coach Reinhard Fabisch’s Dream Team in the 1990s.
