The police also dismissed reports that Auxillia Mnangagwa’s convoy was involved in the accident that claimed Sergeant Chipato’s life.

Pindula News publishes the statement released by national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi giving more details on the accident which killed a member of Auxillia Mnangagwa’s convoy in full:


The Zimbabwe Republic Police reports that on 2. of April 2021 at 1630 hours, a fatal Road Traffic Accident involving Sergeant Freddy CHIPATO of ZRP Chinhoyi Traffic occurred at the 131 km peg along Harare — Chinhoyi Road near Lion’s Den.

The member was on VIP Traffic clearance duties riding a Police Motor Bike while the First Lady’s Convoy was on its way from Mhangura.

Suddenly, a motorist, Tinotenda Esau MUTANDIRO, who was later identified to be a Police Officer stationed in Harare came driving a Toyota Altezza on his way to Karoi with one passenger on board. He tried to pull off the road to the left in a bid to give way to the clearing party but failed and swerved to the right. The Toyota Altezza then encroached on to the lane of the motor bike which was proceeding in the opposite direction.

The vehicle then collided with the clearing motor bike resulting in the death of Sergeant CHIPATO after sustaining serious body injuries.

The First Lady’s Convoy was not involved at all in the road traffic accident.

The ZRP is treating this unfortunate fatal road traffic accident like all other accidents and reiterate that it has nothing to do with the First Lady’s Convoy. The Commissioner General of Police extends his condolences to the family of Sergeant Freddy CHIPATO.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Meanwhile the law will take its course against Tinotenda Esau MUTANDIRO who is now facing Culpable Homicide charges.

  1. Why is the wife of ED is being given VIP protection she is not a govt official. Why? This guy died protecting ED wife also a govt bike was damaged last year same thing happened a person was killed while giving guard to ED ‘wife who is not a govt official .Who will pay for all these damages .Our police officers are being killed while protecting ED wife who would be do8ng her private things not govt work . This tax payer money being wasted .

    1. The whole first family (President’s family) must be at all cost protected as they can be a liability to national security if kidnapped or something like that and The President has to abide by the aggressor’s terms which may be a national security threat. But heyyy what do I know, I’m just a 16 year old wishing to be an Army General one of these days.

  2. Why ate yu saying the 2nd lady is not invloved in this accident. If this biker had not been commanded to be on this trip where would be now
