Welshman Ncube's Son Dies in Car Crash

Harare,—MDC president Welshman Ncube’s son, Ntabiso, died in a car accident Saturday morning, the party has said.

Ntabiso’s Toyota twin-cab rammed into a wall at No. 12 Court Road in Kamfinsa around two o’clock in the morning , the party’s deputy spokesperson, Kurauone Chihwayi said. 

His body was recovered from the car more than four hours later. 

Chihwayi said Ntabiso’s body will leave Harare Sunday for burial in Bulawayo Tuesday. He said the burial had been pushed to allow for Ncube’s children, who are out of the country, to attend the funeral. 

Mourners are gathered at No. 12 Leander Road, Greendale.

On the social networking site, Facebook, condolence messages were written on Ncube’s profile commiserating with the politician.
