The former Home Affairs Minister and former intelligence chief of the Zimbabwe People’s Revolutionary Party (ZIPRA), Dumiso Dabengwa has died. He was 79.

Dabengwa, who is said to have been suffering from a liver ailment, succumbed to the disease. Dabengwa had been receiving treatment for his condition in India.

A few months ago very distressing pictures of the former intelligence supremo were seen in which he was sitting in a wheelchair at Joshua Mqabuko International Airport – his first public sighting since December before he underwent lengthy treatment in South Africa into early this year.

Dabengwa had not been active in ZAPU politics and had revealed plans to step down from the leadership at the party’s upcoming congress.
