- A month after Ginimbi Kadungure's passing, a Zimbabwean journalist gave his opinion stating that his death could have been prevented
- Hopewell Chin'ono said that if it wasn't for the dysfunction when coming to Zimbabwe's services, Gibimbi could have lived
- Social media users weighed in on the matter with some agreeing with him and others blaming Ginimbi's "reckless" driving
A Zimbabwean journalist, Hopewell Chin'ono, has spoken out about the allegedly poor ambulance services in the country. According to Chin'ono, Zimbabwe has "dysfunctional institutions" and Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure's death could have been prevented if it weren't for this.
The journalist took to Twitter and spoke about what his takeaway was from the unfortunate event of Ginimbi's passing:
"He (Ginimbi) could have lived if we had an ambulance service that worked," said Chin'ono.
He continued: "The looted state funds would have built a dual carriageway. There are times when personal money can’t replace national rot. RIP.”
Ginimbi passed away in a car accident a month ago. Three other people were also killed in the crash. Ginimbi had allegedly been speeding when he lost control of his vehicle and hit a tree, causing the vehicle to catch fire.
A number of people did not agree with Chin'ono's statement because Ginimbi died instantly, meaning he could possibly have not been saved. Others agreed with the journalist.
Here are some reactions from social media users on the matter:
@CMakuwerere said: "You are spot on. This notion that one can make money in this rot and live comfortably is typically burying one's head in the sand like the proverbial ostrich."
@mudzu_thabe replied: "More like he could have lived if he didn’t drive recklessly."
@KalekyeMoments commented: "The people in power need to steer clear of corruption and ensure that all governmental institutions work seamlessly. In case of an emergency, these systems will help save them, something their billions won't be able to do."
@i_VickyNyanga said: "Absolutely correct. Having money in a country with no standard health care services, no fire and ambulance service, no safe and clean drinking water and no electricity means nothing."
