Controversial preacher Passion Java has reportedly hit and killed a pedestrian along Seke Road with witnesses saying he swapped cars before disappearing from the scene.
Passion Java had earlier posted a video of his arrival at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport which means the accident could have happened while on his way from the airport.
Java had campaigned for Emmerson Mnangagwa prior to accident in Harare’s hitting and killing a pedestrian in Harare’s Caledon Park.
In the video shared by Passion at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International airport, a group of women under the banner of Young Women for ED led by deputy speaker of Parliament Tatenda Mavetera mobbed Java. It is not clear if the Young Women for ED group as well as a Director in the Ministry of Youths had come to receive Passion Java at the airport.
He also spoke to a ZBC news crew about the forthcoming meeting on drug abuse where he expressed his tacit support for Mnangagwa.
Police have since confirmed the accident saying;
“The ZRP confirms a fatal road traffic accident which occurred today at around 1208 hours along Seke Road near a Zuva Service Station when a BMW X6 vehicle which was travelling towards Chitungwiza hit a woman aged +/-20 who was trying to cross the road from West to East.”
