MAZOWE North MP Edgar Chidavaenzi (Zanu PF) was reportedly found dead in his hotel room at an upmarket hotel in Harare on Thursday.
National police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba confirmed the incident on Thursday, but could not give further details as police were still at the scene investigating the matter.
“I can confirm that the MP was found dead inside his hotel room, but I don’t have much detail as our investigating officers are still at the scene,” Charamba said.
Zanu PF Mashonaland Central provincial secretary for administration Wonder Mashange also confirmed the development, saying Chidavaenzi’s body had been taken for post-mortem.
“It’s true, he died today inside his hotel room. The body has been taken for post-mortem. We are still waiting for the results,” he said.
A close source said they suspected Chidavaenzi could have succumbed to high blood pressure as he had often complained of the condition.
