Former Masvingo Rural District Council (MRDC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Clemence Makwarimba and now Zanu PF strongman in Masvingo was invoved in a car accident on Sunday evening.
The wreckage of the vehicle Clemence Makwarimba was driving
The accident happened around 8pm just after Stop Over along Masvingo – Great Zimbabwe highway.
Makwarimba’s son Phainos confirmed the incident saying his father was coming from his farm when the accident took place.
“I can confirm that my father was involved in an accident while he was coming from the farm. We thank God that he sustained minor injuries. However, he broke his artificial leg during the accident,” said Phainos.
“I think it was just a mechanical fault which led to the accident. I suspect the accident could have been caused by the failure in the front suspension. This forced his car to veer off the road going deep into the forest. However, he managed to drag himself close to the road where he was helped,” added Phainos.
Makwarimba is a senior Zanu PF politician in Masvingo.
