Just in: Zimbabwean foreign affairs minister dies of covid-19

Zimbabwe’s foreign affairs minister Sibusiso Moyo is dead.

He died Wednesday, a day after testing positive for the coronavirus, acting chief secretary to the president and cabinet George Charamba said in a statement.

A close family member of Moyo also confirmed the death.

“It’s true my brother died of Covid-19. He tested positive yesterday,” the family member said.

He becomes the third government minister to succumb to Covid-19 since the pandemic hit the country in March 2020.

The retired army Lieutenant-General was the face of the military operation that ousted former President Robert Mugabe in Nov. 2019.

He went on to be part of current President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration.

Pretty sad!
