23 MDC-T supporters from Masvingo were injured in an accident in Filabusi while travelling back home from an MDC Alliance rally that was held in Bulawayo on Saturday. The driver of the kombi lost control of the vehicle while allegedly trying to avoid a cow on the road along the Bulawayo-Zvishavane Highway in Filabusi. The injured were rushed to Filabusi District Hospital and White Hospital in Zvishavane.
In an interview with The Chronicle yesterday, one of the victims, Mr Joachim Chiware, who is also MDC-T Chivi North district secretary, said the driver tried to evade a cow that had strayed onto the road, resulting in the accident. MDC-T acting spokesperson Ms Thabitha Khumalo confirmed the accident but could not provide details of the accident.
