A 30-year-old unlicenced Harare minibus driver has reportedly appeared in court after he crashed into Zimbabwean Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s motorcade.

According to New Zimbabwe.com, Silent Hungwe, appeared at the Harare magistrate’s court facing charges of contravening the road traffic act.

He was remanded in custody pending a high court bail application, the report said.

Hungwe was expected back in court on September 4.

Prosecutor Linda Gadzikwa told the court that the suspect bumped into one of Chiwenga’s motorcade at the corner of Borrowdale road and Kingsmead on August 24.

No casualties were reported from the accident but both vehicles sustained serious damages, the privately owned NewsDay newspaper said.
