(Harare)Thousands of Zimbabweans from all walks of life in the past 24 hrs thronged the cyberspace with various “get well soon” messages wishing MDC-T President and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai ‘s official spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka a speedy recovery following a near fatal car crash.
Luke Tamborinyoka is reported to be battling for life at hospital in Harare after he was involved in a car accident early Sunday.
He was travelling to his rural home in Domboshava when a rear tyre of the Toyota Prado he was driving burst and he lost control of the vehicle. The car overturned three times before landing by its roof, leaving Tamborinyoka seriously injured and his five brothers who were in the car escaping with minor injuries.
Douglas Mwonzora, the spokesman for Tsvangirai’s MDC-T party, confirmed that Tamborinyoka has suffered head injuries, broken ribs and his lung was also affected following an accident.
Another senior MDC-T official who visited the Avenues Clinic this evening where Tamborinyoka is on life support told ZimEye “I was at the hospital this evening we couldn’t see him as he is in ICU-(Intensive Care Unit). We are all hoping he gets well but from what I hear the injuries are quite bad.”
Meanwhile, his boss Tsvangirai was yesterday reported to be in the United Kingdom with his wife, Elizabeth Macheka may have to urgently return to Zimbabwe, in light of this incident, senior MDC-T sources said.
They rubbished speculation that PM Tsvangirai is on honeymoon, saying he travelled on a business trip to Brussels last Thursday.
