“A T35 truck which was carrying wedding material made a sudden stop on the road. Two vehicles, which were part of the Vice-President’s convoy and which were travelling in front of the Vice-President’s vehicle, successfully managed to swerve to the other side to avoid the T35.

“The Vice-President left the scene of the accident unharmed. Only one passenger who was in the T35 truck sustained injuries.”

Mphoko and Emmerson Mnangagwa were sworn into office as President Robert Mugabe’s deputies on Friday.

Mnangagwa was also involved in a road accident in October when his official Mercedes Benz collided with a vehicle owned by Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.

Mnangagwa’s vehicle was extensively damaged but he escaped unhurt.
