By Farai D Hove| The Zimbabwean doctor who was caught on camera driving dangerously, has been slapped with an arrest warrant for killing 3 people.
Dr Chiradza was forced to take leave after a video went viral showing him driving recklessly on the road between Otjiwarongo and Okahandja.
He is implicated in the death of three people in a road crash in July 2015, and ZimEye is reliably informed police suspect that he was high on drugs and not alcohol as previously assumed. His employer has revealed that he has previous cases of substance abuse, well known to his employer.
The development is set to open discussions on how the Namibian Health Ministry allowed him to continue taking care of patients while knowing fully that he is a substance abuse patient.
He was only stopped from working after the dangerous driving video became viral at the weekend.
After he was stopped from working, a warrant of arrest was issued on Monday 12th March.
The Namibian Press Association reports that Chiradza is wanted in connection with the deaths of Konrad Louw, Welmine Louw and Aletta Junius when Chiradzi’s car sideswiped the vehicle they were in on the Karibib-Us.
His video (BELOW) was streamed on ZimEye.com 2 days ago.
ZimEye could not at the time of writing determine if he was still in the country or had crossed the borders.
