Accident kills Veteran Air Zimbabwe pilot

Veteran Air Zimbabwe pilot and flight operations manager Captain Danai Taruvinga has died. He was 50.

Captain Taruvinga died in an accident when his Mazda 6 car was rammed by an Irvine's Ford Ranger twin cab as he was driving out of his Waterfalls residence in Harare. His son Nicholas, confirmed his death.

"He died after an Irvines truck hit his side while he was driving out of the drive way. We tried to rush him to hospital but he was pronounced dead on arrival. He will be laid to rest at Glen Forest Cemetery on Saturday," he said.

Born on September 9 in 1963, Cpt Taruvinga attended Mazowe High School. He was sent to Amsterdam in Netherlands and became one of the first aircraft engineers after the attainment of independence in 1982.

Cpt Taruvinga became a pilot in 1991 and he rose through the ranks to become a captain. He was one of the first pilots to fly the MA60 and he had vast experience flying Boeing 767s and 737s.

He is survived by his wife Matirasa and four children - Nicholas, Michelle, Tanyaradzwa and Tafadzwa. Mourners are gathered at number 54 Godfrey Avenue, Waterfalls in Harare.
