According to, the accident occurred just a few kilometres from Kenmaur.

Police spokesperson for Matabeleland North, Chief Inspector Siphiwe Makonese confirmed the tragic incident but could not give further detail.

Sibanda, stationed at Drill Hall's police recruiting department, was heading towards Bulawayo when the accident occurred.
