Madzibaba Nzira Dies

A family relative, Madzibaba Simbiso Mhike told the State controlled ZBC television Monday afternoon Nzira died on Sunday evening after a
long illness.

Nzira, a known Zanu PF loyalist, was in January this year released from prison on compassionate grounds after serving 15 years from
raping seven women at his Seke, Chitungwiza  shrine.

Madzibaba Nzira is known for his famous statement that President Robert Mugabe was a God given leader and must rule for life.

His premature release from prison was widely believed to be a ploy to bolster Mugabe’s waning popularity ahead of Zimbabwe’s elections next
year.

Seen as a demi-god by his legion of followers, Madzibaba Nzira was known for marshalling his followers to Zanu PF functions including the burial of heroes at the national shrine.
