Zimbabwe: Tamborinyoka Returns to Work After Near Fatal Crash

Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai' spokesman, Luke Tamborinyoka, has returned to work three months after he nearly lost his life in a car crash.

Tamborinyoka, who started work on Wednesday, told SW Radio Africa he feels much better and well rested following the horror crash in November last year.

The Toyota Prado vehicle that he was driving burst a tyre and rolled four times in Domboshava. The former journalist suffered serious head injuries, broken ribs, a perforated lung and a damaged vein on his left arm. He spent several weeks at the Avenues Clinic.

He thanked his colleagues and friends for their support and said it was good to be back at work.

'Yes I've resumed full time duties...I started yesterday (Wednesday) and I feel fine,' he said. At the time of the crash, the Premier's spokesman was travelling with his two brothers, Ngonidzashe and Kelvin, and two uncles Milton and Cleopas. All the passengers escaped with minor injuries.

In his absence veteran journalist William Bango held the fort as the Prime Minister's acting spokesman.
