SOUTH Africa-based Zimbabwean businessman, widely known as Vlad Duk, has died in a suspected case of suicide.
Reports say Vlad allegedly took his own life for reasons yet to be established.
He is said to have left a suicide note, which his wife has not yet received.
Prior to his death, Vlad posted something that his followers say was a premonition of his demise.
“It’s not over till it’s over,” he posted on his Facebook timeline on Friday.
According to his profile, Vlad was the CEO of Vladtech Systems, a company which won a gong at the recently-held Zimbabwe Achievers Awards, in the business category.
