Former Zanu-PF youth league boss Absalom Sikhosana (69) was involved in an accident along Khami Road in Bulawayo when a vehicle sped over a kerb dividing a road and collided head-on with his.
The driver of the other vehicle, a South African registered Toyota Hilux, identified as Collen Gift Nyathi (37) died on the spot on Saturday just after midnight. Sikhosana told The Chronicle that prior to the accident he had hit a push cart vendor with his vehicle before rushing him to Mpilo Central Hospital. He hit the push cart vendor after visiting victims of the recent White City Stadium bombing who are still admitted at Mpilo Central Hospital.
He said he took away the push cart so that he could leave it at the injured man’s home. Sikhosana said while he was driving to the western suburbs along Old Khami Road, near Khami Cafe he was involved in the head-on collision that left the other driver dead. He said while at Mpilo Central Hospital where he had just got an X-ray examination, he was informed that another vehicle had rammed into his car as it was being towed away.
