Zimbabwe’s ZANU PF youth leader Magura Charumbira who led a group of youths against former First Lady, Grace Mugabe, November last year has been killed in a car crash.
Party officials confirmed this on Monday, NewZimbabwe reports.
Charumbira led a group of youths into booing and heckling Grace during a Bulawayo youth interface rally last hear
His car was said to have crashed into a stationary lorry along the Harare-Bulawayo road near Norton early Monday.
Zanu PF Harare provincial youth league chairman Godwin Gomwe confirmed the accident although details were still sketchy.
“That what we are hearing and it’s true he died in an accident. We do not have full details and will provide them as soon as we have them,” Gomwe said.
The Bulawayo rally incident is believed to have been responsible for a chain of events that led to the sacking of then Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa by then President Robert Mugabe. The military took over two days after Mnangagwa’s sack.
Mugabe was subsequently forced to resign and Mnangagwa was installed as President.
