CHIVI – Trymore Madhoro (53) from Madamombe in Chivi was crashed and killed in a road accident that happened at the 57km peg along Masvingo-Zvishavane Road on Saturday.

The accident comes barely two days after another girl Sibongile Nkosi (14) from Summerton was crashed by a vehicle near Masvingo Show Ground last Thursday.

Masvingo Provincial Police Spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the latest accident and said that it was worrisome that two pedestrians were lost in road accidents in the province in a short space of time.

“We urge motorists to avoid over speeding and ensure road safety,” said Dhewa.

According to the Police report the accident happened at 8: 30 pm on Saturday.

The accident involved a single cab Mitsubishi driven by Tapiwa Mabhiza (46) driving from Zvishavane towards Masvingo. Upon reaching the 57km peg Mabhiza was flashed by an oncoming vehicle and lost sight of the road.

He hit the pedestrian moving from the opposite direction. Madhoro died on the spot.
