Zanu-PF legislator Misheck Mugadza survived a road accident on Wednesday afternoon after his vehicle was involved in a head on collision with a haulage truck in Macheke, Mashonaland East province.
He was on his way to Harare.
Mashonaland East deputy police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Misheck Denhere confirmed the accident.
“I can confirm the accident, but I cannot give you finer details because I am out of office,” Denhere said
Mugadza, who is also a Zanu-PF Manicaland provincial member, is reportedly admitted at West End Hospital in the capital.
Zanu-PF Mutare District Coordination Committee chairperson Binali Yard yesterday said Mugadza’s condition was stable.
“Mugadza was involved in a road accident with a haulage truck, but he is in a stable condition,” Yard said.
“We are overwhelmed by the number of Mugadza won the Mutasa South constituency after defeating Citizens Coalition for Change candidate Regai Tsunga in the March 26 by-elections.
The seat had fallen vacant after Tsunga was recalled from Parliament by then MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora.
Meanwhile, national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi yesterday said there had been a 22% increase in road accidents since the beginning of this year.
