Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Jonathan Mbiriyamveka

RA­DIO and tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity Tendai ‘Sokostina’ Garwe was in­volved in a hor­rific car ac­ci­dent in Harare on Christ­mas Eve to­gether with a Zim­pa­pers Tele­vi­sion Net­work (ZTN) col­league Rumbidzai Nderere.

The two who are in a crit­i­cal, but stable con­di­tion, sus­tained se­ri­ous leg and arm in­juries. They are ad­mit­ted to the Av­enues Clinic’s In­ten­sive Care Unit.

ZiFM Stereo pre­sen­ter, Tino­pona ‘ Tin Tin’ Kat­sande, a close friend of Sokostina vis­ited her on Wed­nes­day and said the bub­bly TV and ra­dio per­son­al­ity was in good spir­its.

Tin Tin also ar­ranged a prayer vigil that was held out­side the Av­enues Clinic on Wed­nes­day.

“We man­aged to do a sneak peek and see Soko for a few min­utes in ICU after the prayer vigil yes­ter­day. Her body is bro­ken, but her spirit is strong and unshaken.

“Through the mor­phine and braces, tubes ban­dages and beep beep ma­chines, she man­aged to give us her in­fec­tious smile we all know and love from pics and on TV,” said Tin Tin.

“She even cracked a joke through the grog­gi­ness and gave us that con­ta­gious chuckle/laugh we hear from her on ra­dio. She is fight­ing with ev­ery morsel she has and with­out a doubt like us, she has all the faith that she will re­cover 100%.”
