    – Paidashe (26), son to Hellen McGhie Primary School head, Herbet Horuno Zengeya was killed in a car accident while driving in Harare last week.
    Farai Zengeya, Paidashe's mother confirmed the death of her son who graduated from Chinhoyi University and said burial took place at the rural family home at  Zengeya Village in Chief Nyamandi in Gutu area two days after the death on August 28, 2016.
    He was 26.
    The death was a double tragedy to the family as Paidashe was involved in the accident after he had driven an uncle from Masvingo to Harare for medical check-up.
    The uncle Amos Chimhamhiwa (81) who was not involved in that accident succumbed to his illness and died on the same day Paidashe was buried.
    Paidashe lost control of his vehicle, a Subaru Traxiq at the roundabout next to the Post Office Central Sorting Office along Airport Road in Harare when the car flew over ridges and into the fly-over where he died after being thrown out of the car.
    He was alone in the car and was coming back into town after dropping relatives in Epworth.
    "According to the Police the car swerved and rolled several times forcing Paidashe who was not putting on a seat belt out through the windscreen.
    He suffered head and chest injuries and died on the spot," said the mother.
    His father said the death was a double tragedy to the family.
    "On August 25 Paidashe drove his uncle from Masvingo to Harare for medical checkup. While in Harare Paidashe made an errand in the evening where he was then involved in the accident and died.
    "The uncle that he accompanied to Harare succumbed to the illness on the day that we buried Paidashe," said his father.
    Paida did his primary education at Victoria Primary and Helen McGhie and secondary at Kyle College.
    He went to Chinhoyi University of Technology from 2010 to 2014 where he was studying Business Management and Entrepreneurship. Paidashe was a former worker at Pick 'n' Pay Masvingo.
    He is survived by his wife Faith Zengeya Matura and one child.local news
