Latest reports from Zimbabwe reveal that ex-Zimbabwe coach Sunday Chidzambwa has survived a car accident on Wednesday.

The News Day website has it that Chidzambwa was involved in a freak accident in Kariba which saw his vehicle hit a pedestrian before crashing into a house.

Chidzambwa, who coaches a Zimbabwean Castle Lager Premier Soccer League side, ZPC Kariba, was reportedly driven by an unidentified female driver at the time of the accident.

The report indicates that the pedestrian, also unidentified, suffered minor injuries while Chidzambwa and his friend were unharmed.


ZPC Kariba, who are a club owned by power utility Zesa Holdings, have since confirmed the accident in a statement.

“It is true that Sunday Chidzambwa, our head coach of ZPC Football Club (sic), was involved in a minor road accident this morning (Wednesday) when he was being driven by a soccer fan in Kariba from a training session,” Zesa spokesperson, Fullard Gwasira said.

“The coach is in a safe condition and is very much in good spirits. However, as a result of that minor mishap, a pedestrian, who sustained minor injuries, was treated at a local hospital and discharged. We wish the injured person a speedy recovery.”

Furthermore, the report indicate that the crash took place in Nyamhunga suburb and completes a horrible week for Chidzambwa.

The coach saw his side losing 1-0 to league newcomers Yadah FC at the National Sports Stadium last Friday.

ZPC Kariba were set to play Caps United this weekend, but the match has been postponed as the champions will be involved in the Independence Cup semi-final against Dynamos.
