  1. all i can say is ethics

    1. To hell with ethics, that word does NOT exist in the ZANU PF vocabulary, “Damn the ethics.” Maybe the church goes can tell us what his Almighty says about all these deaths who blesses them SATAN or GOD

    2. GOOD ADVICE: do something for yourself, for your family. Don’t waste your time talking about these already rich politicians while other people are enjoying their lives with money without even paying attention to these dirty politicians. See how this poor Zimbabwean woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accidented vehicles. Very interesting. Go to ACCIDENTEDVEHICLES dott COM to see all these 5 companies that she was using to do this. ACCIDENTEDVEHICLES dott COM , Wake up African people

  2. to avoid contesting bantu be zanu , advice your loved ones to stay away from zanu pf while they are still alive bcoz the same people who are to investigate are the killers

  3. Hamheno!!!!

  4. Tichaona Chiminya and Talent Mabika did not accidentally die but were killed by well known assailants (Joseph Mwale is alleged to have done the work). And many more have been killed.

  5. Eish! Nxaaaa! One day Our God will PUNISH someone behind all the deaths of the sons & Daugthers of Zim.

  6. farefare tindike.watchout!

  7. Joel Nyamamhini

    You left out a couple others who also died in mysterious circumstances. Governor Herbert Mahlaba also died in an accident in which he was reported to have hit a donkey along Vic Falls – Bulawayo road. Maurice Nyagumbo was poisoned after the Willogate scandal. Jonah Chimuka (Chihombe Madhara) was also hit by an army puma near Nyazura in 1986. Mama Mafuyana the widow of the late Father Zimbabwe Joshua Nkomo was also reported to have been poisoned by members of Zanu PF women`s league.

    William Ndangana was hit by mistake. They were targeting Edgar Tekere who had become a
    thorn in their flesh and had just formed ZUM. General Zvinavashe, though he was ill, is also suspected to have been finished off after he publicly told people in Gutu that Zanu pf had lost to the MDC not because people didn`t like the party but because of the presidential candidate Mugabe.

  8. The end is now near, as they annihilate each other we are watching soon they will touch pa mwayo chaipo ndipo pazvichazvimbira.

  9. What kind of a party eliminates its people? If indeed their are behind these mysterious deaths then they will pay for these acts. Zanu is an evil party that delights in blood being shade.

  10. A satanic movement where one cant opt out once in. Shuwa kufirei chaizvo. Iyo harahwa iyo nembavha dzema diamonds shuwa dzirikugutsa mhuri dzavo nemari inofanira kuve iriyako.
    Nxa fungai vana veZimbabwe.

  13. What do you hope to achieve by highlighting these accidents ? Zvichabatsirei besides opening old wounds ? Conspiracy theories like shanje hadzivake musha !

    1. I was also wondering what it is that newsday is trying to achieve by this so called timeline. Some of the accidents occurred way way back before newsday and most of its reporters came into being, so where did they get these mysterious theories. Quote us the sources of your info if you want us to believe you.

  14. What do you hope to achieve by highlighting these accidents ? Zvichabatsirei besides opening old wounds ? Conspiracy theories like shanje hadzivake musha !!

  15. Thabani Mgabadeli

    Its dog eat dog…. These murders will be investigated and the killers or those who ordered the killings will be brought to book…

  16. Zororai murugare baba Chininga penyu mapedza zvasarira isu vapenyu. Chibvumirano hatityore, hatirase mbereko nekufirwa, hatidye muchetura nekunyara, masiya vavengi vakisa miswe mudenga kunge mbambarize. (MDC-t, Mdc-n netwumwewo tumapato) zvino horomba ZANU-PF, munongoziva zvinoitika panosangana Gudo ne-rize. Pamberi nechimurenga! Pamberi nehupfumi kuvatema! Pasi nevatengesi! Icho!!!

  17. killings! But ASIJIKI

  18. these are only car accidents what about crocodile pit in Murehwa and acid tanks in Hwange,this political party is for the devils

  19. The more they kill,the more opposition voters they are creating because there are no relatives who can vote for a party that killed one of them.So its a matter of shooting ones self in the foot.

  20. Musatyiswe nevanoda kutyisidzira! Asjiki!!

  21. Majaira kunwa ropa revanhu maZanu-pf, manje rwendo runo kune vapanduki. Taneta Asjiki!!

  22. poli ticks nxaa..blood suckers.

  23. Cde Gabarinocheka

  24. What happaned to Susan Tsvangirai? She was eliminated the very same wk Morgan was sworn as pm to facilitate his open zip venture

  25. el hombre malo

    Ma vampire

  26. It’s a sad loss, very sad indeed. It is also irresponsible and plain tasteless of this paper to use this man’s death to initiate conspiracy theories to sell papers. Give it time, too soon Mr. idiot reporter!

  27. Zanu pf for life. Icho!!!!

  28. Kusile mahlabezulu

    Dog eat dog that’s ZANU PF. When will they stop eish ma 1

  29. sydney malunga saw a black dog

  30. im not one to meddle in other organisations operations but might i suggest a change in Modus Operandi? Poisoning maybe? Snakes in the bed,an air bubble in the bloodstream to cause a heart-attack,bathroom electricution or my personal favourite,the suicide with a note confessing infidelity and bankruptcy…just a thought

  31. Ethics?? i second that motion.

  32. Artiful Dodger

  35. zvakaoma.. people havachade zanu for real

  36. Simweena Bantu

    MDC desperation. Go to VID or Traffic police and get statistics of casualties of road traffic accidents. Several hundreds of people die on Zimbabwe’s roads daily. The fact that among the victims are zanu pf officials, is coz zanu pf is the dominant party. The late VP joshua nkomo once said during the early years of independence ”if there are more black faces in the public service, it’s not because they are black, but because the character of the country is that people with black skin are more than those with white skin”. Does anyone get the point?

  37. lets go n vote for change. an election wtout blood on ballot papers will end this barbarism

  38. Zvipfukuto zvanga zvichiita marehearsals kuti munhu angaurayiwa sei. Bva kana iri accident Satan akazobva nepi akaita kuti zvipone? Wat a strategist, only time will tell.

  42. weevil chipfukuto

    for Tongogara`s death and Mahachi, Oppah Muchinguri owes the nation an explanation.

  43. What a stage managed Drama kkkiikkk Zanu-Pf politics @ Play to earn selfish needs. Cont.Mhlanga you can now Recruit Actors to *Amakhosi Cultural Centre* Many of the are squandaring as Honourables, kkkkikk.

  44. Why allow the future president of this country to drive himself in hostile territory. Viva E.D.

  45. WILLARD MUBVUMBI

    Like in soccer, juju is also used in African politics. Enemies usually use a victim’s totem to cause mishaps and curses. Its wise not to divulge your totem to anyone. This is Africa and anything can happen.

    1. Haa chief @WILLARD MUBVUMBI, i doubt if that’s true. The dear leader’s totem is known globally ( unless of course if its not his) but our traditional chemists and wizards have failed to effect any spell on him in order to bring the end of him sooner. If anything, his stay on dear earth is somehow being prolonged!!!!. HAZVISHANDE IZVO!!

  46. The list is not long enough, can the grim ripper work harder

    1. Dr Fart Fart (oh that’s you in English!!) you are right, The Grim Ripper says grow old with me my Son, what an irony! Suri….he’s how much..90? and still counting..but not for long I’m afraid.

      1. GOOD ADVICE: do something for yourself, for your family. Don’t waste your time talking about these already rich politicians while other people are enjoying their lives with money without even paying attention to these dirty politicians.

  47. Cris Ushehwekunze! Cris, Cris, Cris, the guy was very intelligent. Very intelligent, His death was a loss to the whole nation and not ZANU PF only. He was such a rare diamond never to be found in ZANU PF anymore. I feel as if he is still alive. Our hearts are still bleeding and tears falling more than 20 years after his death. Thank you reader pakumbotirangaridza gamba renyika Cris Ushehwekunze.

  48. Nonsense. Its a fake accident staged to make an irrelevant Ngwena relevant, Jonathan Moyo is now embarassing himself. Who will kill Ngwena in his own murky pool nxa. Another desperate move by Ngwena. Shame the writing is on the wall. Mujuru 4 sure!

  49. I also believe this was stage managed by himself(Edd) bcoz bato harina ma funnies or corrections pama accidents. Panotoendwa ku heroes chete whether mota yacho yapara or 100% intact pasina kana scratch inotoita fatality chete
