FORMER Highlanders coach, Kelvin Kaindu was Wednesday morning involved in a car accident about 30km outside Zvishavane.
Kaindu, recently appointed as Triangle Football Club technical advisor, was on his way to Bulawayo for a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match against Chicken Inn.
He was driving an Opel Astra and was travelling alone at the time.
The Zambian gaffer referred all questions to his friend, David Simba, who confirmed the accident.
“Kaindu was travelling from Triangle early this morning for today’s game against Chicken Inn,” he said.
“The accident occurred around 5.30am about 30km out of Zvishavane.
“He was travelling by himself at the time.”
Simba said it was suspected the car rolled twice.
“Villagers came to help, before the team’s (Triangle) secretary general, Abraham Chinemaringa, who was travelling behind him, arrived at the scene,” he said.
A report was made at Mandamabwe police station.
Kaindu is due to be taken to Galen House for an examination.
“At the moment we don’t know what caused it, we are waiting for the police report,” Simba said.
“He is shocked and this has really affected him.
“However, we hope that he will be able to be involved in today’s match.”
