The lorry driver involved in the road collision that killed Zimbabwe Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s wife, Susan, is due in court.

Chinoona Mwanda, 35, will plead not guilty to a charge of culpable homicide over Friday’s crash, his lawyer said. Chris Mhike said his client had not been negligent and the poor state of the road was to blame for the crash.

Mr. Tsvangirai is due back in Zimbabwe to prepare his wife’s funeral after undergoing treatment in Botswana. The circumstances of 51-year-old Mrs.Tsvangirai death have stirred up a whirlwind of suspicion, given the past acrimony between the partners in Zimbabwe’s fledging unity government.
