The ruling Zanu PF party has been plunged into mourning following the death of its Youth League national executive member, John Nhamburo.
The deceased, sparked massive uproar last month after he was accused of deliberately running over and killing a member of the Nelson Chamisa-led Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) party.
Reports say Nhamburo collapsed and died early Tuesday morning.

Reacting to Nhamburo’s demise on Twitter, CCC deputy chairperson Job Sikhala said:

“John Nhamburo the Zanu PF Central Committee member who ran over a CCC member on election day in a hit and run incident and had been terrorizing villagers in Ward 2 in Chaona has died. No one knows what killed him as he was not sick.”

While not providing much detail on Nhamburo’s death, ZANU PF Patriots tweeted:
“Rest strong Cde John Nhamburo We sadly received news of the death of the national executive member of the ZANU PF Youth League and also a member of the Central Committee Cde John Nhamburo. Cde Nhamburo hailed from Mashonaland Central Province”.
