Deaths rock Zec

HARARE - Juba Chekenyere, Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) director of administration, has died.

He was 54.

He is the fourth top official at the commission to pass on within the past three months.

Stephen Goneso, Zec acting chief executive officer, confirmed the death, saying Chekenyere died of heart failure.

“He died today (yesterday) morning. He had a heart problem,” Goneso told the Daily News.

“We are still planning the burial arrangements but he will be buried in Gweru. We are still not sure of the exact place where he will be laid to rest but the burial will be on Thursday.”

Just last week, Zec acting director for public relations Tendayi Pamire died at B.S Leon Medical Centre in Harare.

According to family spokesperson Silent Pamire, the Zec official succumbed to renal failure.

In June, Zec chief executive officer Lovemore Sekeramayi, 67, died while attending a Sadc elections meeting in Lesotho.

He was found dead in his hotel room of heart and lung failure.

Sekeramayi’s death came barely two months after the commission lost another top-ranking official, Shupikai Mashereni, who was director of public relations at Zec.

This is clearly the work of the CIO. These people were all part of the team that have details about the 2013 election rigging and the CIO is not taking chances. Its too much of a coincidence for all these people to die one after the other. What goes around comes around, they should have known better. Big up to Morgan Tsvangirai for sticking to his guns. The truth will come out no matter how many people they kill.
