MDC Spokesperson, Daniel Molokele has narrated how he was involved in a road accident in which he sustained minor injuries.
The accident happened on Friday along the Bulawayo-Victoria Falls road when he was on his way to Hwange. Molokele revealed in a statement that he was now recuperating from his Hwange home. He wrote:
Hallelujah! I thank God I am still alive. Last night I was involved in a car accident near St Lukes turn-off (close to Lupane. By God’s grace, I escaped with minor injuries. It could have been worse.
I was driving from Bulawayo to Hwange when I saw a herd of cattle crossing the road in the darkness of the night. Instead of driving straight into the herd, I swerved off the road. My truck ended up stuck up on a dry and sandy small riverbed. The ruck is badly damaged, but the engine remained intact.
Meanwhile, the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe has been urging drivers to be extra-vigilant on the roads since some, if not most, of the accidents, are caused by human error. Posting on Facebook, the council said:
Don’t phone, text, and drive. IT CAN WAIT!
Some of the accidents have also been caused by the poor state of the roads.
