JUSTICE Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa who survived a car accident on Wednesday night reported for work this morning and was said to be in “high spirit” with no visible injuries.
The Zanu PF secretary for legal affairs in the Politburo was involved in an accident with a Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals vehicle while driving along Herbert Chitepo Avenue in Harare.
Zanu PF Midlands provincial deputy chairman Larry Mavima told NewsDay that Mnangagwa was fit and “as usual” busy with his work.
“He is actually at his office and busy working. He is very well,” Mavima said.
“He has seen his doctor, there are no injuries and there is nothing to worry about. He is in good spirit and it’s good we did not experience the worst.”
Mavima added: “accidents do happen and that’s why they are called accidents” dispelling conspiracies ahead of Zanu PF’s elective congress in December.
“We are happy that he is well,” Mavima said.
Reports were that Mnangagwa was driving along Hebert Chitepo Avenue when the other vehicle travelling in the opposite direction suddenly turned encroaching into the right lane and rammed into his car.
The right side doors on Mnangagwa’s white Mercedes Benz were extensively damaged.
The accident happened close to the American embassy in Harare’s Avenues area.
Mnangagwa and Vice President Joice Mujuru reportedly lead factions battling to succeed President Robert Mugabe (90). The duo has however denied that pledging its loyalty to President Mugabe.
