Former War Veterans Affairs minister Tshinga Dube has weighed in on claims that the Retired General Solomon Mujuru could have been murdered for political reasons or a business deal that had gone sour.
In his autobiography, “Quiet Flows The Zambezi” to be launched on Friday, Dube wrote:
What led to his death may have been political or some business enterprise that went wrong. There are people who think it was to do with a diamond mine in which he had some shares.
At the time of his death, some shares were set to be disposed of as part of the community share ownership scheme. Mossad, the Israel intelligence outfit, is alleged to have been involved.
Anyway, such inexplicable political events are part of Zimbabwe.
Mujuru died in 2011 in a fire at his Beatrice farmhouse just outside the capital Harare in unclear circumstances.
A fire is reported to have engulfed the farmhouse and charred Mujuru’s remains, with an inquest into the death concluding that there was no foul play involved.
