Midlands Police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko confirmed the accident:

“I confirm that Taso died on the spot in an accident which happened on Saturday at the 25km peg along Masvingo – Shurugwi road. The other three were ferried to Zvamabande where Ruzive fled from the hospital before he was admitted. He fled with the car of the man who gave the three transport to the hospital. He is still missing because we never received any information that he came back. The three did not sustain any injuries and they were therefore discharged from hospital,”
