A driving lesson turned nasty when a drunken cheating couple hit a two year old girl killing her on the spot in Highfield near Kudzanayi Primary School on Sunday.
According to an eye-witness who saw the accident, the car dragged the child along with her mother whom she was walking with resulting in the death. The mother is in a critical condition.
“Mota yavazvuzvurudza ichipinda navo mugoronga mayazobuditswa. (The car dragged the child and her mother into a trench where it was pulled out.) Ndazovhara mwana neZambia taona kuti afa (I had to cover the deceased with a Zambia cloth),” said the eye-witness who requested anonymity.
The witness explained that the male was teaching his girlfriend to drive resulting in the tragic accident.
“The people driving the car are married to other spouses and both were driving under the influence of alcohol,” said one eye-witness.
The couple was mobbed by other eye witnesses peeved by the accident.
