Bill Wiggill, spokesman for a veterans group, told the Associated Press on Wednesday that General Walls had died Tuesday while living in exile in South Africa. He left Zimbabwe soon after Mugabe accused him of a failed assassination plot, which Walls denied.
General Walls died at George airport in South Africa. He and his wife Eunice were about to travel to Johannesburg to meet up with family for a stay at Kruger game park. It is reported that he collapsed as he was getting out of the car – immediate efforts to revive him failed.
