Unlicensed Honda Fit Driver Rams Into State Motorcade
A 26-year-old Harare man was recently arrested after he rammed into a State motorcade along Bulawayo Road in Harare.
It emerged that the suspect, Tatenda Mupariwa, does not have a driver’s licence.
Mupariwa appeared at Mbare Magistrates Court charged with negligent driving and driving without a licence.
He was not asked to plead to the charges when he appeared before Mbare magistrate Nyasha Vitorini, who remanded him to 24 May for trial.
Prosecutor Tatenda Mutawarira told the court that on Monday at around 10 am, Mupariwa was driving his Honda Fit west along Bulawayo Road intending to turn right into Golden Quarry Road.
Munyaradzi Marimo, the first outrider leading the state motorcade, was on duty riding a motorcycle east, sounding a siren signalling motorists to pull over to make way for the motorcade.
It is alleged that Mupariwa turned right in front of the oncoming first outrider, resulting in the collision.
Marimo is said to have sustained facial injuries and was rushed to ZRP Morris Camp Hospital for treatment, while Mupariwa was rushed to West End Hospital after sustaining injuries.
The state alleges that Mupariwa turned right in front of oncoming vehicles and failed to stop when he saw that an accident was imminent.
