Top Zanu PF official who chased CCC members away from Moreblessing Ali’s funeral wake dies


ZANU PF chairperson for Nyatsime, George Murambatsvina, the man who barred Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) supporters from mourning their slain colleague Moreblessing Ali at her home in Nyatsime has been confirmed dead.

Murambatsvina is said to have died after a short illness.

Together with another Zanu PF official, Masimbi Masimbi, Murambatsvina declared the area a no-go-area for opposition supporters soon just before there were running battles between the two main political parties.

Opposition supporters have taken to social media in “celebration,” arguing the late Ali’s “unsettled spirit” is avenging.

“All those who had a hand in her death and the chaos that was witnessed at her funeral wake should follow him. This certainly deserves a braai,” said another CCC member.

Ali’s funeral wake became a warzone as CCC supporters sought revenge against Zanu PF supporters who dominate the peri-urban settlement.

As a result houses of pro-Zanu PF supporters were torched, with Zanu PF retaliating in the evening of the same day two weeks ago by burning 26 homes of people perceived to be sympathetic or supporters of party leader Nelson Chamisa and his CCC.
