Zimbabwean hit and run fugitive arrested in SA
Forty-one-year-old Wadzanayi Mabika was arrested this week in Polokwane, in the Limpopo province.
JOHANNNESBURG - A Zimbabwean kombi driver who fled to South Africa after he allegedly ran over and killed a teenager in Harare last month, has now been arrested.
Jocelyn Gomba, an outstanding pupil at a leading girl's school in the Zimbabwean capital, wanted to be a neurosurgeon before she was killed.
This was a heart breaking accident, made more poignant by the girl's father's assertion that he bore no resentment towards the driver.
Forty-one-year-old Wadzanayi Mabika is reported to have fled to South Africa after borrowing money from a woman in Norton, near Harare.
Mabika was arrested this week in Polokwane, in the Limpopo province.
Police paraded him in front of reporters in Harare on Monday, and his picture is on the front page of today's state-run Herald.
Gomba's death late last month sparked a demonstration by pupils from her school against an illegal taxi rank operating nearby.
