The former Zimbabwe batter also faces the charge of failure to report an accident
Chingoka was 38.
According to a report in The Herald, Chingoka sustained fractures on the left leg and elbow, and died in hospital on January 27.
Musakanda is alleged to have stopped at the scene of the accident and driven the injured Chingoka to hospital, but that he did not report the accident to the police within 24 hours of the incident. It is alleged that Musakanda filed a police report on January 28, a day after Chingoka’s death.
The post-mortem ruled that the road accident was the cause of Chingoka’s death.
This is not the first time Musakanda has been in trouble related to driving. In January 2020, he returned home from Australia after his club team, New City Cricket Club, sacked him for a drink-driving conviction.
The 27-year-old Musakanda has played five Tests, 15 ODIs and 12 T20Is since his international debut in 2016. His most recent appearance for Zimbabwe was in a T20I against Bangladesh in Harare in July 2021.
