A ZIMBABWE court found the driver of the truck involved in the accident that killed Zimbabwean prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai's wife Susan in March guilty of culpable homicide, it was reported at the weekend.
Magistrate Tapera Bvudzijena found the accident, in which the truck sideswiped the car the Tsvangirais were travelling in, to have been a result of negligence by Chinowona Mwanda, who was driving the truck carrying US aid.
The court fined Mwanda $200 (about R1500).
Tsvangirai, who had just started as newly elected premier, was injured in the March 6 accident near the farming area of Chivhu, south of Harare.
According to papers before the court Mwanda had denied the charges when the trial opened.
In passing sentence on Friday, Bvudzinjena acknowledged that the accident occurred at a notoriously dangerous spot that had no appropriate warning signs.
The magistrate, noting that the state of the roads in Zimbabwe was poor, said though there was negligence on Mwanda's part, he was not entirely to blame. - Sapa-dpa
