A family relative, Simbiso Mhike told the State controlled ZBC television Nzira died on Sunday evening after a long battle with hyper tension and a heart ailment.
Nzira is survived by three wives, seven children and two grand children. Mourners are gathered at his Johane Masowe Wechishanu, Chitungwiza shrine.
Nzira, a known Zanu PF loyalist, was in January this year released from prison on what was said to be compassionate grounds. He was serving a 15 year sentence for raping seven women at his Seke, Chitungwiza shrine.
His health never improved after his release. Nzira once declared that President Robert Mugabe has been given to zimbabwe by God and should rule for life.
His premature release from prison was widely seen as a ploy to bolster Mugabe’s waning popularity ahead of Zimbabwe’s elections next year.Post published in: News
