Nation prays as Tamborinyoka battles for life


(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.

Hospitalised...Luke Tamborinyoka

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.

    I’m not too sure if the sellout will survive and l really don’t care what happens to the idiot. I agree as well with Pound, these idiots can fly zvechibharanzi chaizvo and kana vagemuka voti Zanu Pf, CIO, Mugabe etc. The other day, driving past Norton towards Harare, Biti almost killed himself when he tried to overtake me in front of an oncoming vehicle. Had it not been for my good judgement, my knowledge of defensive driving plus my international driving experience he could have been history. Ruka, dai Mwari vaita kuda kwavo vazorodze nyama iyo. At least manyepo anoita mashoma. Ki ki ki ki ki ki ki, while taking the wise waters at a waterhole in Domboz yesterday, somebody said, “…..ah, zviri pachena uyu ndi Jimalo Maridhadhi akitisa dinga..”.

    Tamborinyoka, Mhofu? I thot he was one of those totemless from up there. What does tambolinyoka mean? A car spinning 3 times might mean over speeding. But inotambika, I once had rear tyre burst and ended up in a bridge and God’s help nevadzimu ,I came out clean. I think this was an inside job, vana Maridadi ava!!

    Cde Luke, get well soon and continue with the struggle against these forces of darkness.


    GOOD ROADS!GOOD ROADS! and cars in good conditions is what is required in Zim.Also no drink and drive should and must be the motto. Having said that hope you recover and get better soon. So?

    Greyhora, Greyhora my son can’t u see that this indeed is good riddance to an otherwise morally bankrupt being who must have earned the wrath of the creator to deserve such a backlash! My son I urge you to take a good lesson from these events unfolding b4 yo very eyes. Leave that morally decayed party for the only part with the people at heart ZANU-PF that is if the cadres there accept such rotten junk like u Greyhora my son( don’t worry your stupid off though, it can be arranged)

    Bla, ndiyani afa? As far as we know, Luke is alive but in critical condition, if it was your ploy to kill him then muchamaama as usual, and even if it happens, musauye kurufu kwacho, who needs baboons at funerals? Garayi nechidhoma chenyu kustate house ikoko chisingade kufa icho. Kuzoti iyo ngochani huure ra John Nkomo riri kuzviti Baba Greyhora, who will you turn to now that your “old man” is dying slowly and painfully, enda unonzwiswa blambi na jonathan, wapedza woenda kuna kasukuwere, kana vasingakude ivavo woenda kunofa, dog!

    Contrary to reports in the media at the weekend which claimed Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is on honeymoon in the United Kingdom, the PM has not been on any private visit to Europe as claimed, ZimEye has been told.

    Last week senior aides told ZimEye early on Thursday the PM was travelling to the UK and Brussels for an official visit.

    When contacted again Sunday one official who declined being identified asked, “Who on earth would go to a cold rough country for a honeymoon? There was no need for that to be raised and the journalist even reported that they were unverified rumours.”

    PM Morgan Tsvangirai

    Speculation against Tsvangirai reached another peak at the weekend because of the rumours as news readers accused Tsvangirai of insensitivity based on the news reports. This was following an accident in which Tsvangirai‘s spokesman Luke Tamborinyoka was involved in a near-fatal accident as he visited his rural home in Domboshawa.
