Musician Fungisai Zvakavapano pleaded guilty to negligent driving when she appeared before Harare magistrate Ms Ruramai Chitumbura and will be sentenced today. Her car bumped into a vehicle that she was trailing too closely after she failed to manoeuvre while overtaking and hit another vehicle in the outer lane, causing other vehicles to pile up.
In her defence Fungisai said that she assisted one of the injured to recover her spectacles. Said Fungisai:
I earn $500 per month and I am a co-breadwinner with my husband. One of the complainants lost her spectacles during the accident and I helped her recover them. I also contribute to the society by participating in various campaigns against poverty, hunger and marginalisation of the girl child.
