Jason Machaya claims his Land Rover was tampered with following last year’s accident

Minister of State for Midlands Provincial Affairs Jason Machaya told The Chronicle that investigations into an accident that nearly claimed his life are not yet complete amid allegations from the car’s manufacturer that the car was tampered with.

Machaya was injured after he was involved in a car accident along the Harare-Gweru Road on 17 July last year after one of the front wheels of his Land Rover Discovery 4 came off before the car rolled several times. Speaking to The Chronicle from Chegutu Machaya said:

Investigationas are not complete as we speak. I was told by the manufacturer that their vehicle will never experience such a mechanical fault on its own. They said that kind of accident or fault only occurs when the vehicle has been tampered with. On the other hand CMED people haven’t done much. They are saying no one tampered with the vehicle. But the bottom line is I could not have tampered with the vehicle because I value my life.
