MASVINGO – Policing and maintaining law and order can be dangerous as two Masvingo Municipality police learned after a pirating taxi driver they had arrested deliberately rammed his Toyota Funcargo into an oncoming vehicle with the officers on board.
Musiiwa Makadho, one of the officers broke his right leg while his colleague Robert Muungani broke his ribs. The incident happened at around 4pm on Thursday last week.
The driver of the pirate taxi who is suspected to have been operating illegally suffered a broken leg and hand and also sustained serious head injuries.
All the three were admitted at Masvingo General Hospital at the time of going to Press.
Sources told The Mirror that the arrested motorists warned the two officers who boarded his pirate taxi and ordered him to drive to Civic Centre that he was going to commit suicide by crashing his vehicle into oncoming traffic.
Police spokesperson Sgt Cripen Gwashu said he was not aware of the case.
The arrested driver drove along Robert Mugabe from Zesa offices in town and made his threats true by not turning left to the Civic Center but speeded towards Mucheke River Bridge and then accelerated into a an oncoming articulated truck as they approached Chevron Hotel.
The three passengers were luck that a small car suddenly overtook the heavy truck and they then crashed into it instead, said sources.
"The driver wanted to go into the heavy truck which was coming from Beitbridge but fortunately it was overtaken by a smaller vehicle whose impact must have been smaller compared with the heavy vehicle," said a municipality police officer who witnessed the incident and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The driver of the other car Gift Shoshore who is into forex dealing at Spar was not injured.local news
