PICTURES: Vimbai Tsvangirai in horrific accident; senior MDC official dies
Glen View legislator Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java (MDC Alliance) is in a critical condition after a car she was traveling in was involved in a fatal head on collision with a yet to be identified vehicle in the Midlands.
Vimbayi is the daughter to the late MDC founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
The accident has since claimed the life of one senior MDC party member Paul Ruganda.
Ruganda was Vimbai Tsvanggirai-Java’s campaign manager as well as organising secretary for a Harare district of the MDC.
Meanwhile, Vimbayi is reportedly in a critical but stable condition at Kwekwe General Hospital.
Party spokesperson Jacob Mafume confirmed the development and said Tsvangirai-Java was involved in an accident near Kwekwe and she has been taken to a local hospital.
Said Mafume: “Yes it is true. But I can not yet say much about the accident since I am on my way there.
“I can only be able to furnish you with details after I arrive where she is and get to know what really happened. But yes the accident happened near Kwekwe.”
Another MDC official, Harare Councillor Denford Ngadziore, has claimed that a certain Sekuru Mhundwa was in the same car with Vimbai and passed away in the mishap.
