Thabani Mpofu does not rule out foul play in road accident
Advocate Thabani Mpofu does not rule out foul play in the road accident which saw his Toyota Landcruiser overturning and trapping him and his driver on Saturday.
The driver reportedly lost consciousness for some time, with the duo experiencing no life-threatening injuries.
Advocate Mpofu became a household name after he represented Chamisa in his election petition last August at the Constitutional Court, with all the nine top judges dismissing his election petition for lack of primary evidence.
When asked by an online newspaper if he suspected foul play in the accident, Advocate Thabani Mpofu responded: “I will exhaust my investigations and take a position very soon.”
Chamisa reacted to the accident on Twitter Sunday, saying: “So the vehicle veered off the road, rolled once and landed on the side. Adv Mpofu was trapped for some time together with his driver who’d lost consciousness. Some injuries, blood, bruises, pain on the chest and ribs. Just spoke to the People’s Advocate. He is ok. Thank you Jehovah!”
There has been a spate of road accidents recently, with outspoken Harare preacher, Talent Chiwenga sustaining injuries in a fatal car crash last week.
Only this Monday (yesterday), a top MDC official survived by the skin of his teeth after his vehicle crashed while driving on a dirt road in Plumtree.
Mr. Solani Moyo, the MDC’s chairman for Matabeleland crashed on Monday while driving from rural Plumtree.
Last week, the party also lost its legislator for Glen View South, Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java, when she succumbed to injuries sustained in a road accident on May 12 near Truckers Inn outside Kwekwe.
