Zapu leader Dumiso Dabengwa has died.
ZAPU leader and former Home Affairs Minister Dumiso Dabengwa has died. He was 79. The death of the liberation war hero was confirmed by a family member who spoke to 263Chat. His family is reported to have approached the government for help in repatriating the body after he is said to have died in Kenya.
The former ZIPRA Intelligence Supremo during the Second Chimurenga died on his way back to Zimbabwe from India where he had gone to seek medical attention. He is reported to have been suffering from a liver disease.
Despite serving as a cabinet minister under former President Robert Mugabe, Dabengwa fell out with the ruling party and pulled the Zapu party out of Zanu-PF and from the Union Accord in 2009. He became a harsh critic of the Zanu-PF government and actively campaigned for MDC leader Nelson Chamisa in the run-up to the July 2018 Presidential elections.
Dabengwa who has not been feeling well of late announced that he was going to step down from the leadership of Zapu at the party’s next congress.
