Cal Vin Suspected Killer In Hit And Run Accident CLEARED
A suspect who was arrested last year on allegations of killing popular musician Cal Vin in a hit-and-run accident has been cleared on all charges.
This comes after police revealed that DNA tests carried out on blood found on Wilfred Mafuka’s vehicle proved conclusively that it was not from the accident, since it belonged to an animal.
Speaking to state media, Mafuka said,
“The police phoned me telling me I could collect my car since the tests had proven that I was not involved in the accident that killed Cal Vin. The blood samples they had collected from my car belonged to an animal and not that of a human being,”
The highly talented musician and award-winning rapper Cal Vin, real name Mgcini Calvin Nhliziyo, died in October last year following a fatal accident that occured a few metres from his home. That Luveve Boy, as Cal Vin was affectionately known, was 35-years-old at the time of his death.
Following the death of the musician, Bulawayo Provincial Affairs and Devolution Minister Judith Ncube urged the killer to hand themselves to the police rather than to pretend as if nothing had happened.
A few days later the police arrested Mafuka in connection with the hit and run accident. Surprisingly, Mafuka is the one who handed himself over to the authorities.
On 28/10/20 Police in Bulawayo arrested one suspect in connection with the fatal hit and run accident which led to the death of musician Calvin Nhliziyo. The suspect handed himself over to the police on 28/10/20.

It appears, that Mafuka may not have been sure of what happened on the night in question.
According to some reports, Mafuka has a different car from what was reported, he owns a Mazda Atenza, and is reported to have been attending an Anti-Sanctions Gala at Bulawayo Rainbow Hotel during the time of the hit and run.
The police have not commented further on the matter.
