MECHANIC BURIED BY CRANE
. . . biker killed at mechanic’s funeral
A PROMINENT Kadoma mechanic who died in an accident was lowered into his grave by a crane.
Franco Muchenje was yesterday given a hero’s send-off in the city with business coming to a standstill for some hours with spectacular events characterising the day. Among the eye-catching moments was when his coffin was laid down using a crane.
Merry makers were also in for a rare treat as local stand-up comedians took turns to entertain mourners at Kadoma town cemetery.
However, the aftermath of the burial also partly hogged the limelight for the wrong reasons after a yet to be identified city biker died after being hit by a lorry which was reportedly coming from Franco’s burial.
The biker was hurried to Kadoma General Hospital soon after being hit as crowds were already thronging to get a glimpse of the tragic incident.
Sources from the hospital who declined to be named last night confirmed that the biker had died.
Contacted for comment over the death claims, Kadoma General Hospital Medical Superintendent, Dr Franskson Masiye could not avail details saying he was on leave.
The late mechanic Franco, perished in a car accident last week along Kadoma-Sanyati road on his way from Chakari heading to his house in Pixie Combi, Kadoma.
A businessman only identified as Mr Low was among the first to announce the Franco’s death saying, “We have lost a dedicated, honest and exceptional motor mechanic in Kadoma, Franco Muchenje. Was involved in an accident yesterday midnight at a curve (Chakari road) going to his home in pixie combie. He was just a good man. May his soul rest in peace.”
