Journalist squashed between tree and car during scuffle with a woman

Journalist and public relations practitioner Augustine Dalubuhle Moyo has died. He was 38. Moyo died Monday evening after being involved in a freak accident at Pennywise Shopping Centre in Eastlea.

According to The Zim Morning Post, Moyo died at Baines Intercare after he succumbed to injuries sustained in a scuffle between him and a lady friend only identified as Sandra.

“He was having drinks by Pennywise with a group of friends and at around 8 pm, he had a scuffle with one of the friends, a lady called Sandra.

“She tried to drive off but Augustine appeared livid and clung to the car tussling for the stirring (wheel), that is when the lady lost control of the car and rammed into a tree squashing Augustine, he was rushed to Baines (Intercare),” narrated a source who attended to the scene.

The lady also sustained injuries and was treated and discharged on the same night.

Moyo trained as a journalist at UMAA Institute and worked at the Sunday Mail where he rose through the ranks to the Business editor of the weekly.

He then joined Zimbabwe National Roads Authority (Zinara) as a corporate communications executive before resigning on December 17, 2019, to pursue other interests.

His body is expected to be ferried to Marondera on Tuesday evening for burial on Wednesday. Mourners are gathered at his Windsor Park house in the same town. He is survived by his wife Chantelle and three children.

Police spokesperson Paul Nyati could not be reached for comment at the time of writing.

However, it is understood the lady in question could face culpable homicide charges considering the manner of Moyo’s death.
