Kwekwe – Sad details have emerged surrounding the fatal accident involving Vimbai Tsvangirai, the daughter of the late MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
The vehicle Vimbai was travelling in was involved in an accident as they left the Midlands capital of Kwekwe this evening.
Two people passed away in the crash, one of them Tafadzwa Munzwa, the security detail assigned to protect Vimbai.
Munzwa was a cousin of the late Susan Tsvangirai, the wife of the late Morgan.
The identity of the other victim is known to Khuluma Afrika, but cannot be released, as the wife and next of kin is yet to be informed.
Khuluma Afrika is reliably informed that the deceased victims did not die immediately after the accident, but were trapped for three hours, as police did not respond to calls for assistance.
Ambulance personnel were able to free Vimbai Tsvangirai from the wreckage but struggled to free Tafadzwa Munzwa who was trapped by the door.
By the time police arrived, the two had succumbed to their injuries.
Khuluma Afrika has been told that Nelson Chamisa drove to the accident scene upon being told of the crash, so too did Tendai Biti and several other senior MDC leaders.
At the time of writing Khuluma Afrika can confirm that Vimbai is being transported to Harare by ambulance.
