ZBC senior reporter, Judith Makwanya, dragged an alleged errant driver Theophilus Damba to court after a collision in the CBD.
Damba pleaded not guilty to negligent driving when he appeared before Harare magistrate Nyasha Vhitorini. The court heard that on July 23 at the intersection of Herbert Chitepo Avenue and Simon Vengai Muzenda Street, Damba failed to give way to traffic coming from the right and collided with a Ford Ranger that was being driven by Makwanya.
Damba allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout of the road ahead and he also failed to stop or act reasonably when a collision seemed imminent. He denied the charges blaming Makwanya entirely for the accident basing his argument on the fact that Makwanya wears spectacles so she could not see properly causing her to bump into his car. The matter was remanded to September 14.
