Zimbabwean man hospitalized after traffic accident in Malta

SANTA VENERA, Malta – A 30-year-old Zimbabwe man hospitalized with grievous injuries after he was run over at Triq San Gwakkin, Mriehel, according to reports in the local media.

The man, who lives in Santa Venera, was crossing Triq San Gwakkin near the Mriehel Industrial Estate at around 12:45pm when he was hit by a Toyota Auris, that was being driven by a 63-year-old woman from Swieqi.

Santa Venera is a town in the Central Region of Malta, with a population of around 6,932.

Displaced Zimbabweans are scattered around the world following the destruction of the economy by the country’s strongman Robert Mugabe.

As many as 4 million Zimbabweans live outside the southern African nation’s borders, according to government estimates. That’s out of a country of only 13 million. Zimbabwe’s towns and cities are peppered with billboards advertising services to collect money wired from abroad.
