News reaching the Siya crew is that Zimbabwe national team star, Kudakwashe Mahachi, was involved in a car accident on Sunday afternoon.
The midfielder, who was impressive for Zimbabwe during the Chan 2014 championship in South Africa earlier this year, has already confirmed that he signed a five-year contract with Mamelodi Sundowns, although the Chloorkop side is yet to confirm the deal.
The 20-year-old was involved in an accident in the small mining and industrial Zimbabwean town of Kadoma and escaped with no injuries.
He was travelling with Zimbabwe teammates Milton Ncube and Peter Moyo on their way from Bulawayo to Harare.
The three players were on their way to camp with the national team for Wednesday's away international friendly against Malawi.
Ncube was the driver of the Toyota Vitz they were travelling in with Mahachi seated in the front seat and Moyo in the back seat.
The car veered off the road and overturned twice before landing on its roof. Ncube was unhurt but Moyo complained about his neck while Mahachi appeared shaken by the accident.
“Milton was driving and suddenly lost control of the car. We are however fine but Peter said his neck was aching. It was shocking and I am still to come to terms with what happened because I realised a person can just die anytime. But thank God we are alive,” said Mahachi.
Warriors’ manager, Shariff Mussa, said they will have to assess the players to establish if they are fit for the Malawi trip.
“The doctors are still assessing to see if they can go to Malawi but otherwise the players are all fine. They are already here in Harare,” said Mussa.
Mahachi signed a five-year deal with Sundowns in January and will team up with the Brazilians in July.
