HARARE – The MDC-T Director of Security Benson Muchineuta nicknamed Okolo, has died after a short illness.
Nehanda Radio understands Okolo died in the early hours of Monday morning in Glen Norah B in the capital. Muchineuta (44) was a long time aide to party president Morgan Tsvangirai.
In March 2009, Muchineuta alongside Tsvangirai’s driver Simbarashe Mujeyi were injured and treated at the Avenues Clinic in Harare after the suspicious car crash that killed Tsvangirai’s wife Susan.
The MDC-T leader who was also injured in the 2009 crash today visited the Muchineuta family home in Lusaka, Highfield to pay his condolences. He was accompanied by several senior party officials.
Mourners are gathered at 1570, Lusaka and Muchineuta who is survived by his wife Gamuchirai Chaita and children will be laid to rest at Kondo Village in Buhera on Wednesday.
