The Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development, Eng Joel Biggie Matiza, has died from Covid-19 related complications.
Mashonaland East Political Commissar Cde Shumbamhini confirmed this to our correspondent Rutendo Rori.
Minister Matiza succumbed to Covid-19 at a hospital in Harare at around 7pm Friday.
He becomes the fourth Minister to perish as a result of Covid-19 related complications following the demise of Perrance Shiri, Dr Ellen Gwaradzimba and Dr Sibusiso Moyo.
Zimbabwe government officials are under siege from the disease with both Vice Presidents Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi reportedly under the claws of the pandemic.
Outside the incumbents, former minister Aeneas Chigwedere and ex-Zanu PF MP Christopher Chigumba both died this Friday from the disease that has killed nearly a thousand locals and infected over 30 000.
