ZANU PF MP IN HEAD-ON COLLISION newsdzeZimbabweNewsdzeZimbabwe

ZANU PF Mutasa South legislator Misheck Mugadza survived a
road accident on Wednesday afternoon after his vehicle was involved in a head
on collision with a haulage truck in Macheke, Mashonaland East province.

He was on his way to Harare.

Mashonaland East deputy police spokesperson Assistant
Inspector Misheck Denhere confirmed the accident to NewsDay yesterday.

“I can confirm the accident, but I cannot give you finer
details because I am out of office,” Denhere said

Mugadza, who is also a Zanu PF Manicaland provincial
member, is reportedly admitted at West End Hospital in the capital.

Zanu PF Mutare District Coordination Committee chairperson
Binali Yard yesterday said Mugadza’s condition was stable.

“Mugadza was involved in a road accident with a haulage
truck, but he is in a stable condition,” Yard said.

“We are overwhelmed by the number of people who want to
find out how Mugadza is copying after the accident.”

Mugadza won the Mutasa South constituency after defeating
Citizens Coalition for Change candidate Regai Tsunga in the March 26

The seat had fallen vacant after Tsunga was recalled from
Parliament by then MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora.

Meanwhile, national police spokesperson Assistant
Commissioner Paul Nyathi yesterday said there had been a 22% increase in road
accidents since the beginning of this year.

Officiating at the launch of the Traffic Safety Council of
Zimbabwe (TSCZ) Heroes and Defence Forces Safety campaign, Nyathi said:  “There is need for change of mindset if we
are to achieve road safety. The country has had a 22% increase in road
accidents since the beginning of the year, with 2 480 hit and run accidents
resulting in people getting injured and loss of life taking place.”

TSCZ chairperson Kura Sibanda urged motorists to minimise
accidents during the holidays.

“As we launch the 2022 Heroes Holiday Road Safety Campaign,
we do so under the shadow of a dark cloud, which is a stark reminder of why we
should redouble our efforts to arrest the carnage on our roads. A week ago, six
people died after two heavy vehicles collided along the Masvingo Highway,”
Sibanda said.

He said the Highway Code would be translated into Shona and
Ndebele. Newsday
