ZANU PF chairlady for Nyatsime Ward 9, Tina Gweshe, has died just hours after the death of George Murambatsvina, the party’s chairperson for Nyatsime.
Murambatsvina is said to have died after a short illness.
The ZANU-PF Nyatsime ward 9 Chairlady reportedly died at a local hospital today.
Like Murambatsvina, she was allegedly part of a grouping which was barring mourners from attending Moreblessing Ali’s funeral.
Meanwhile, two theories have been thrown already to explain the deaths. Some say it is Moreblessing Ali’s avenging spirit killing them while some argue that it could be the ruling ZANU PF killing them to get rid of any evidence that proves that Ali’s death was politically-motivated. Said one commentator:
This could be Zanu-Pf itself, clearing evidence. Politics hadzina kuchipa idzi
Another one said:
Vana Chimwene havabatwi munopera rudzi rwese [you don’t kill people with Malawi origins and expect to get away with it.]
The opposition CCC claims that the abduction and murder of the activist were politically-motivated. The ruling ZANU PF dismisses the claims, rather dismisses it as a domestic violence case.
Police say preliminary results from investigations do not suggest that the incident was political in nature.
