Harare, Zimbabwe (News of the South)-President Emmerson Mnangagwa has conferred a Liberation War hero status on Magura Charumbira after the famous ZANU PF Bulawayo Central District Chairperson died recently in a car accident in Bulawayo.

 

Charumbira who died on Monday gained fame in November last year when he led a group of youths in booing former First Lady Grace Mugabe at a rally at White City Stadium in Bulawayo.

 

The event sparked the eventual deposition of President Mugabe who, angry at the youths, fired then Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa whom he accused of formenting the discord.



In a statement by the Chief Secretary to the President Dr Misheck Sibanda and directed to Dr Obert Mpofu, the Secretary for Administration, Mnangagwa has instructed that all pertaining benefits be paid to Charumbira’s family.

 

“I shall be most grateful if you would make the usual arrangements for his burial and payment of benefits to his dependents,” he said.

 

According to reports Charumbira (34) died on the spot at the 56km peg along the Harare-Bulawayo Road near the Norton tollgate after a Mercedes Benz in which he was a passenger rammed into a stationary haulage truck.

 

Christopher Sibanda the ZANU PF spokesperson was quoted in the media extolling Charumbira.

 

“He was a very vibrant young party member who could have done more in Zanu-PF. There are only a few people of his calibre. He was dedicated to the ethos of the party hence his death is a serious loss for us as Zanu-PF,” he said.
