One has to start wondering if their genuinely is a plot on the lives of those occupying the office of Vice President of the Republic of Zimbabwe. Barely hours after being named Vice President, Emmerson Mnangagwa narrowly escaped cynaine poisoning in his office. Now hours after being sworn in in, his fellow Vice President is involved in a road traffic collision. Are the spirits of the land turning in their graves?
Reliable sources confirmed Phelekezela Mphoko’s official presidential Mercedes limousine was involved in a collision with a T35 truck along Enterprise Road in Harare. While the cause has not been confirmed with the investigation police details, it is narrated the T35 truck stopped in front of the VP’s mortocade causing Mphoko’s driver failing to avoid the truck and ran straight into the hind of the truck.
“If he really was travelling in a motorcade, how was his vehicle exposed to immediate public vehicle in surrounding? Does this not defeat the entire reason for having a motorcade”, Jane Matanganyidze who witnessed the accident from the opposite side of the road querried.
Zimbabwe’s Presidential Guard detail used to be the very best trained in official protection, security and defensive driving. One wonders how the official driver makes such a basic blunder that risks the Vice President.
