The new Zanu PF Mwenezi District Coordinating Committee (DCC) vice chairperson Luckson Chikomo has died reportedly of Covid-19 related complications, TellZim News has learnt.

Chikomo died on January 21 at Collin Saunders Hospital in Triangle where he had been admitted with severe symptoms of the disease which is caused by coronavirus.

Chikomo was elected vice chairperson during the party’s DCC elections held between December 05 and 06, 2020.

A sugarcane farmer on the farms in the Mpapa area, Chikomo deputised Gift Mazhambe who was elected DCC chairperson during the internal party electoral process.

Fellow sugarcane farmer Francis Garirayi said the farming community was devastated by the death of Chikomo whom he described as a dedicated farmer.

“We have learnt with sadness about his death. We have been robbed of a colleague who was dedicated to making use of the land to contribute to economic growth,” said Garirayi.

Chikomo is said to have suffered diabetes, an underlying condition which most probably precipitated his demise after he contracted the virus.

Chikomo was a former employee of sugarcane giant Tongaat Hulett Zimbabwe.

Masvingo province has recorded almost 40 official Covid-19 fatalities since the first lockdown was declared in March 2020.

  1. I found this blogger very much. Take the mouthpiece of the hookah to your lips and hold it in place. If this is your first time inhaling, sit down, to limit the amount of smoke you can inhale and steady yourself if you experience a head rush. As you become more used to smoking you can inhale standing up to get a deeper pull.
