BUHERA – A 17-year-old girl from Mutasa Village who was doing Form 5 at Buhera High School was hit and killed by a Buhera Rural District Council vehicle while she was crossing Chivhu – Nyazura Highway last Monday.
Grace Pasipanodya died on the spot.
Efforts to get a comment from Manicaland Police Spokesperson Inspector Luxson Chananda were fruitless.
Buhera RDC Chairman Ngoni Musakaruka however, confirmed the incident to Chipinge Times.
The Mirror gathered that the accident happened at the 85km peg near Mutasa Business Centre when Eliah Takangovada who was driving a white Nissan NP300 owned by Buhera RDC hit Pasipanodya who was crossing the road after alighting from a pirate taxi.
Takangovada was going to pick up the Assistant District Development Coordinator, Patience Dhinda, who was supposed to attend Junior councilors’ inauguration ceremony at Buhera RDC.
“Our hearts as Buhera RDC go to the Pasipanodya family. We are saddened by the loss of Pasipanodya who was doing Form 5 at Buhera High School. We are really sorry and we hope the family finds comfort in the Lord,” said Musakaruka.
Grace was buried on Wednesday at Pasipanodya homestead in Mutasa Village under Chief Makumbe. https://masvingomirror.com
