A post-mortem done on the body of the late MDC Alliance Councillor for Karoi Urban Ward 4, Lavender Chiwaya, has ruled out any physical harm or assault as the cause of death.
The news was revealed by MDC Alliance Councillor, K. Chigumo in a message he shared to MDC supporters in a WhatsApp group. Councillor Chigumo is part of the MDC Alliance officials who are providing support to the bereaved Chiwaya family.
“Results say physical harm, assault, or body perforation as cause of death is ruled out. Samples for toxicology tests have been taken,” read Councillor Chigumo’s message.
“Preparations for burial tomorrow have kick started. We expect the body to lie in state tonight. Let us fully mobilise for the historic send off to our gallant son of the soil”, he added.
The latest revelations exposed falsehoods being propagated by the MDC Alliance Spokesperson Fadzai Mahere who rushed to tell the global media that Councillor Chiwaya was killed by state security agents.
Similar lies were also spread when one Trinos Chinyoka died in July when he fell into a disused mine shaft.
