President Robert Mugabe Aide Dies
ZANU PF Senator for Zvimba Constituency and Central Committee member Virginia Muchenje has died.
Mrs Muchenje who dropped dead yesterday was 66.
The Admin Secretary Simbarashe Ziyambi confirmed Muchenje’s death saying details were sketchy.
“Details are still sketchy but we can confirm that Senator Muchenje has died. We are still to get details of where she died and the cause, though it is thought to be related to diabetes,” he said.
Born on August 7 1950, Muchenje held several lower posts in Zanu-pf in post-independent Zimbabwe, starting in 1981. She rose through the ranks to become a Central Committee member in 2000 before being elected senator for Zvimba Constituency, a position she held until her death. Burial arrangements are still being finalised.
