It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Nyasha. This occurred on March 28 in Palma during an attack on the town by insurgents.


The family statement did not state how they had received confirmation. Nyasha was married to a Mozambican national and the couple had a one-year-old daughter.

The terrorists targeted areas where foreign workers and contractors were residing and went door-to-door, looting and killing occupants.

Many were beheaded and their bodies left lying in the streets, hundreds were airlifted and others escaped by boat as fighting raged.

The Mozambican army regained control after several days of fighting when the terrorists had already killed dozens and looted shops.

Zimbabwe and other regional countries have discussed a troop deployment to deal with the insurgency.
