By Showbiz Reporter-Zimbabweans are still waiting for details of the death of the UK-based socialite Shelter MacBolan and her two friends, who died in a car accident in Zanzibar while celebrating her birthday.

MacBolan travelled to the island of Zanzibar, Tanzania, last week to celebrate her birthday. 

She had travelled to the picturesque tourist attraction, as her birthday was on Saturday, 16 March.

Shelter went to Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort to get an immersive birthday experience. 

There, she donned the traditional red garb and danced with the Maasai people, who circled her as she grooved.

Later, she wore an immaculate, elegant sky-blue dinner dress and matching heels to a photo shoot, looking like a million bucks. On Tuesday, 19 March, Shelter shared the stunning pictures on her social media account.

Her hearty smile showed how oblivious she was to the impending end that would befall her.

As she travelled in Zanzibar, she was involved in a fatal car accident. 

It is still unclear how and what caused the car crash, but she tragically died in the accident. 

She perished days after celebrating her birthday in style.

Her friend, identified as Summer Rose, revealed her death on social media:

“Shocked beyond belief. Shelter took this picture a couple of days ago celebrating her birthday in Zanzibar, only to die in a car crash a couple of days later whilst on holiday 😭💔 nah this is heartbreaking 😭😭😭😭”
