    – A prison officer returning from a beer drink in Chiredzi died together with a Tongaat Hullett employee when their cars were involved in a horrific head-on collision along the Ngundu-Tanganda Highway on Monday morning.
    Masvingo Police Spokesperson Inspector Charity Mazula confirmed the accident and said Taruona Ndava of Chiredzi Prison was driving a silver Mazda Demio coming from Chiredzi at around 5am on Monday. She said upon arrival at the 95km peg near Buffalo Range Airport his vehicle encroached into Augustine Nyikadzino`s side. Nyikadzino was driving a Nissan Hardbody  vehicle which was going to Chiredzi and there was a fatal head on collision and both drivers were trapped inside their extensively damaged vehicles. Police were assisted by Hippo Valley Fire brigade to remove the bodies and the deceased were ferried to Chiredzi Hospital for post-mortem.
    There was a sombre atmosphere in Triangle as everyone tried to come to terms with the death of Nyikadzino who was a darling of the community. He was going to Chiredzi to collect a veterinary officer who was supposed to inspect cattle for slaughter. local news
