MASVINGO – Zanu PF candidate for the party’s 2018 primary elections Alfred Pedzisa donated a broken down ambulance which has become an eyesore at Unyetu Clinic in Ward 22 Chikomba.

Reliable sources told The Mirror that Pedzisa handed over the ambulance registration number AAF 1421 at a function in 2018 but has not moved an inch since then. The ambulance was towed from Harare to Masasa next to Unyetu.

Pedzisa was contesting for Chikomba Central Constituency against Felix Mhona who was eventually elected MP and is now Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development.

Pedzisa switched off his phone when The Mirror called him for comment.

“From Masasa it was taken over by mechanics who had to drive it to Unyetu, and it broke down countless times along the way. The reason for driving it to Unyeti was to hide the fact that it was faulty. It has remained parked there since then, and it is now an eyesore,” said a priest in the area.

Efforts to get a comment from Chikomba RDC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bullen Chiwara were fruitless as he kept asking The Mirror to call later.

Pedzisa was, until June 2022, the Zanu PF Chikomba District Coordinating Committee (DCC) chairperson. He was suspended on allegations of corruption, and Mhona took over his post.

Villagers and clinic officials who spoke to The Mirror said Pedzisa acknowledged that the ambulance was broken down and promised to fix it. They alleged that he stopped well-wishers from donating a vehicle to the clinic.
