In July, gospel musician Diva Mafunga perished in another accident when his Nissan Vannete veered off the road. He was towing another vehicle and after passing an oncoming bus, he swerved, and the tow bar broke. The little van plunged into a ditch and crashed into rocks and trees. Mafunga was hurled outside, and he smacked a rock with his head.
