A shaken Dlamini, who is based in Bulawayo, told Southern Eye the accident occurred near the Agriculture ministry offices in Harare.

She revealed that she was still in pain from injuries sustained in the accident.
“I am happy to be alive, I never saw it coming,” Dlamini said by phone from Harare.

“The Mercedes-Benz that I was travelling in was rammed by a bus that was going the opposite direction.”

She was taken to Parirenyatwa Hospital where she was treated for the minor injuries she sustained.

“I was discharged yesterday (Sunday). I think I will be coming back to Bulawayo tomorrow (today),” Dlamini said.

She was last week crowned Female Model of the Year.

The former Zimbabwe representative in Face of Africa 2010, is currently working with a local modelling agency called Hunnar Management Agency.
