Fungisai Zvakavapano in court for negligent driving

Posted by Tayana

Musician Fungisai Zvakavapano appeared before Harare magistrate Ms Ruramai Chitumbura facing negligent driving charges after bumping into a vehicle she was following too closely. Zvakavapano failed to manoeuvre while overtaking and hit another vehicle in the outer lane, causing other vehicles to ram into each other. Zvakavapano was remanded to September 18 for trial. 

The court heard that on July 27 this year at around 1pm, Zvakavapano was driving a Mercedes Benz along Leopold Takawira Street in Harare’s Central Business District going to Avondale due north and was occupying the inner lane. She was allegedly following a Toyota Corolla, which was being driven by Onias Kapuranyika too closely.

It is alleged that Zvakavapano failed to keep a proper lookout and tried to overtake, hitting a Toyota Wish being driven by Kudakwashe Makwara, which was on the outer lane on the right front wheel. Zvakavapano lost control of her vehicle and bumped into the left rear side of Kapuranyika’s vehicle. Subsequently, Patrick Zimbiru, who was driving a Subaru Forester rammed behind Zvakavapano’s vehicle.
