The deputy senior security officer at Bulawayo City Council collapsed and died yesterday morning at the council’s Tower Block Municipal buildings in Bulawayo, The Chronicle reports.
64-year-old Sipho Masuku’s unfortunate death was confirmed by ZRP Bulawayo spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube who said:
Police in Bulawayo attended to a case of sudden death at municipal buildings in the early hours of June 8. Investigations are underway.
Masuku’s brother who is the Masuku family spokesperson spoke about the untimely death of their beloved one and said:
He was okay in the morning and drove to work with his wife whom he dropped at her workplace. He then collapsed in an elevator as he was en-route to his office on the fifth floor.
He was pronounced dead there before he could be taken to hospital. The ambulance crew arrived and said they could no longer take him as he was ‘gone’ and then a Nyaradzo hearse took him to a palour.
He has been battling kidney failure and has been going on dialysis routinely and he was also diabetic. We are saddened by his sudden passing.
Funeral arrangements will be announced in due course and BCC said they could not comment on the issue right now.
