“I DIDN’T PUSH HER”
In the case where a 26-year-old Gweru woman was fatally run over by a fast-moving car after her boyfriend allegedly shoved her in the road, more details have emerged.
In the latest twist, ZRP has cleared Lawrence James Chimombo, the suspect alleged to be on the run, citing that he is, in fact, a witness in the case.
Speaking to the H-Metro, ZRP Spokesperson in Midlands Province Inspector Joel Goko said the accused, Lawrence James Chimombo (38) of Torwood, Kwekwe, was actually a witness to the crime and was in the company of the now deceased, Melissa.
“As ZRP we want to make it clear to the public that Lawrence Chimombo is not on the wanted list over that case but he is actually a witness and we recorded his statement as a witness.
“The person who is involved in the matter is Kudakwashe Nyarota because he is the one who hit the now deceased with his vehicle.
“Nyarota was driving a BMW and he says he saw Chimombo’s Ford Ranger in the middle of the road and it was flashing him whilst Chimombo and the now-deceased were fighting behind the car. Nyarota says Chimombo pushed the girl into the oncoming BMW which Nyarota was driving.
“It is actually surprising how Nyarota managed to see what is happening behind a Ford to Ranger whilst he was flashed in his BMW and the body of the deceased was far away from the road, so we are handling the matter accordingly,” said Inspector Goko.
In an interview with the publication, Chimombo dismissed the allegations.
“I am actually a victim in this matter, to begin with. I am not involved in the death of the lady in question, but I only tried to help when the accident happened and that is when Nyarota took advantage to create a story against me.
“The lady is not even my girlfriend, but we met at Parblos in Gweru where we were having a few drinks and she agreed to come with me to Kwekwe for a sleepover.
“On our way to Kwekwe, just after Regina Mundi, the lady changed her mind and she asked me to drop her off so that she can return to Gweru.
“You know women sometimes are unpredictable, so I dropped her off by the roadside just a few meters away from the road.
“As she was crossing the road I do not know what really happened, but I just heard a sound. I disembarked from my car to see what has happened then this guy (Nyarota) disembarked from his vehicle and came to me shivering only to notice that he had hit the lady who had disembarked from my vehicle with his car.
“I switched on the mobile phone torch only to realize that the lady was lying helplessly outside the road,” said Chimombo.
