Amos Chibaya, a senior official of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change was this Sunday involved in a ‘near-death’ road accident just before the Runde river on his way from Gweru to Zvishavane.
Some have viewed the accident as an attempt by the President Mnangagwa-led administration to kill the MDC-Alliance organising Secretary.
Among those who suspect foul play is Zimbabwean journalist and filmmaker, Hopewell Chin’ono who is a staunch critic of President Mnangagwa. He posted on twitter saying:
In our country, many opposition leaders/critical voices have been killed through accidents.
Today the MDCA organising secretary Amos Chibaya was involved in an accident.
A stationary car driven by a CIO officer suddenly made a U-Turn & collided with Chibaya according to the MDCA
HIs remarks echo those of MDC activist, Pedzisai Ruhanya also tweeted saying:
ZANU PF politics has graves. The target against MDC Organising Secretary Hon Amos Chibaya is not a mistake. They know he organises the party, supporters and crunch time is waiting Mwonzora, Khupe, Mudzuri and Komichi so MDC @nelsonchamisa must be crippled. Systems footprints.
Eyewitnesses reported that a Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) operative Norman Kujoka made a u-turn in front of Chibaya’s approaching vehicle ramming into the front of the car.
