The fatal road traffic accident occurred on January 3, 2024 at about 0700 hours at the 116 kilometre peg along Harare-Chirundu Road.

Dr Madzima’s death comes hot on the heels of another similar accident where a ZRP officer died at the 51 kilometre peg along Harare-Mutare Road when a haulage truck registration number ACZ 3265 , owned by Shereni Transport, dislodged a trailer wheel.

The wheel hit the female Police officer who was standing on the left side of the road. She died upon admission at Borrowdale Hospital.
