Residents of Eastlea in Harare have hit out at General Chiwenga’s wife, Mary for her flagrant disregard of speed limits.
Her convoy driven by soldiers zooms in and out of the suburb at such speeds that residents fear that their children will be knocked down.
The speeding convoy accompanies Mary to the area daily, where she runs a beauty pageant business and travelling agency – Miss Zimbabwe Trust and La Roche Travel.
The speed limit in residential areas is 10 kms/hour. Resident are now pushing for speed humps be built to slow down the speeding convoy.
“The two cars move at such a high speed and imagine one day they will run over our children,” said Mr Masenyama a resident. “Honestly how can one travel at above 120 kms per hour in a residential area where kids play? We have children cycling or playing games and they are at risk of being run over,” added another resident, Mrs Charinga.
