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

 

“I can confirm the accident, but I am out of the office and unable to provide additional information,” Denhere said.

 

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

 

Binali Yard, chairman of the Zanu PF Mutare District Coordination Committee, stated yesterday that Mugadza’s condition was stable.

 

“Mugadza was involved in a collision with a transport truck, but his condition is stable,” Yard said.

 

“The number of people wanting to know how Mugadza copied after the accident has overwhelmed us.”

In the by-elections held on March 26, Mugadza defeated Citizens Coalition for Change candidate Regai Tsunga to win the Mutasa South constituency.

 

Tsunga was recalled from Parliament by then-MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora, leaving the seat vacant.

 

The spokesperson for the national police, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, stated yesterday that the number of road accidents has increased by 22 percent since the beginning of this year.

 

Nyathi, speaking at the launch of the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe (TSCZ) Heroes and Defense Forces Safety campaign, stated, “If we are to achieve road safety, we must change our mentality.” Since the beginning of the year, the number of road accidents in the country has increased by 22 percent, with 2,480 hit-and-run accidents resulting in injuries and deaths.

 

Kura Sibanda, the chairperson of the TSCZ, urged motorists to minimise accidents during the holiday season.

 

“As we launch the 2022 Heroes Holiday Road Safety Campaign, we do so under a dark cloud that serves as a stark reminder of why we must redouble our efforts to stop the carnage on our roads. Six people were killed a week ago when two heavy vehicles collided on the Masvingo Highway,” Sibanda said.

 

The Highway Code will be translated into Shona and Ndebele, according to him. Newsday
