Impala Car Rental Comes Clean On Tawanda Muchehiwa’s Abduction

Local car rental company, Impala Car Rental has come clean concerning the abduction of young journalism student and activist Tawanda Muchehiwa.

Muchehiwa who is the nephew to ZimLive.com editor Mduduzi Mathuthu was abducted a few weeks back by suspected state agents who used a vehicle that had been rented from Impala Car Rental.

This has seen the car rental company come under pressure from Zimbabweans on social media, who want the company to divulge the details of the people who rented the vehicle.

In a statement, the company emphasized that it has no intention to cover for criminal elements who use its vehicles to conduct criminal activities. CEO Thompson Dondo added that his company is eager to cooperate with law enforcement agents to ensure that Tawanda Muchehiwa gets justice.

ZiMetro.co.zw is publishing the statement from the car rental company in its entirety below:

Following a social media video clip which implicates one of our rental vehicles (Registration No. AES 2433) in an alleged abduction for Tawanda Muchehiwa in Bulawayo, Impala Car Rental would like to advise all our valued stakeholders that we are really concerned with this matter.

As a service provider, we are limited in controlling where and how our vehicles will be used because clients are not obliged to disclose their vehicle hiring purposes. It is very possible that some clients may use our vehicles for criminal activities without our knowledge & it is not our intention to cover up for such criminals.

As Impala Car Rental we stand obligated to cooperate with any investigations by the Law Enforcement Agents into this matter so that Tawanda Muchehiwa gets justice.

We would like to assure all our stakeholders that Impala Car Rental remains committed to providing the best service possible at all times!

Thompson Dondo
Chief Executive Officer
