CHIREDZI – A nine-year-old boy from Bhisani Village, Chief Mupapa, Chiredzi was ironically hit and killed by a motor cyclist whom he tried to pave the way for by driving donkeys out of the road.

Kupakwashe Mulela was hit on Sunday at around 3 pm along Malisanga–Chiteya Road. 

Masvingo Provincial Police Spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the incident to The Mirror.

Sources said that Peter Manjengwa (44) who resides at Mutirikwi, Triangle was riding his motor cycle due south and Kupakwashe was leading a donkey drawn plough heading the same direction.

Manjengwa tried to overtake the donkey drawn plough and whilst in the process of overtaking, Kupakwashe allegedly ran to the right in an attempt to control the donkeys but unfortunately he was hit by the motor cycle.

He sustained serious head injuries and was taken to Chiredzi General Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon admission.
