Ase­nior man­ager at BuildIt Hard­ware in Mba­bane was killed yes­ter­day when he lost con­trol of his car and it over­turned at Malag­wane Hill. In­for­ma­tion gath­ered is that the man­ager was alone in the van when the ac­ci­dent oc­curred, killing him on the spot. Sources said the ac­ci­dent hap­pened a few min­utes be­fore 4pm.

Po­lice and the fire and emer­gency per­son­nel ar­rived promptly at the scene but they could not save the man­ager who re­port­edly died on the spot.

Chief Po­lice In­for­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer Su­per­in­ten­dent Khu­lani Mamba con­firmed the ac­ci­dent, say­ing po­lice were still in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause.

Stated

He, however, stated that in­for­ma­tion re­ceived was that the driver lost con­trol of the car and it over­turned, killing him on the spot. He stated that it had been in­di­cated that the de­ceased held a se­nior po­si­tion at Build It, though he was not sure if he owned the hard­ware or was a man­ager.

One of the au­thor­i­ties at Build It could not hold his tears back when in­ter­viewed as he was still con­fused and did not be­lieve that his col­league had passed on in this man­ner. He said he had only learnt of his sud­den death and could not pro­ceed with the in­ter­view. A close friend of the man­ager when called con­firmed the man­ager’s death, say­ing he was a good per­son as he knew him for many years.

He also re­vealed that he was on his way to the Mosque at Ezul­wini, where the body of the man­ager will be prayed for in prepa­ra­tion for his burial.
