GURUVE South MP Edward Chindori-Chininga was last night reportedly involved in fatal accident at Shinje turn-off at the T-junction of the Harare-Guruve Road.
Although details were still sketchy at the time of going to print, his wife confirmed the accident and said she was yet to get full details from the police officers who had attended the scene of accident.
“I just heard that an accident happened, but I am yet to get a full report of what actually happened,” his wife told NewsDay last night.
National Traffic police spokesperson Luckmore Chakanza was still checking on the matter by the time of going to print last night.
It was not clear whether Chindori-Chininga was alone in the vehicle at the time of the accident.
The incident happened hardly a week after the outspoken Zanu PF MP and ex-Mines minister had released a damning report on the abuse of diamond revenue in Chiadzwa diamond fields. Chindori-Chininga, viewed by many as a rebel MP, was booted from Zanu PF Copac delegation for reportedly leaking information to the MDC-T, as factional fights took their toll in the beleaguered President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF party.
The MP took to Facebook and launched an astonishing attack on Didymus Mutasa, the party’s secretary for administration.
Chindori-Chininga survived a horrific accident in March last year when his official car collided with a pick-up truck near Mazowe Hotel apparently on his way to Guruve. He was said to have been trapped in the car for a considerable amount of time while other injured victims were taken to hospital.
