Another wheel flies off truck, kills Chinhoyi Med officer Dr Madzima


It appears a week rarely passes without a wheel coming off a haulage truck and killing a pedestrian, the trend is worrying and authorities have to take action as chances are someone is sleeping on the job in the garages.

Today a medical doctor was killed by a wheel that came off a haulage truck in the same fashion as the female cop and the five year old girl killed in Marondera and Mutare respectively.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police reports a fatal road traffic accident involving a Chinhoyi Provincial Hospital Government Medical Officer, Dr Tinotenda Madzima (30) which occurred on January 3, 2024 at about 0700 hours at the 116km peg along Harare-Chirundu Road.

“The doctor was walking along the road when he was hit on the back by a wheel which had dislodged from a Scania haulage truck which was travelling towards Harare. The victim died on the spot,” said national Police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi in a statement in possession of The Midweek Watch.
