Former Zanu PF legislator for Mbare Constituency Tendai Savanhu succumbed to the deadly Covid-19 pandemic on Sunday evening. Savanhu rose to prominence as the Godfather of the notorious Chipanagno terror group in Mbare.
He was 52. At the turn of the millennium Savanhu led the infamous terror group through sponsoring and the group terrorised and tortured political opponents and any dissenting voice to Zanu PF’s rule in the popular suburb. Though he denied the existence of the group.
At the time of his death Savanhu had been expelled from the ruling Zanu PF party for fanning factionalism.
Savanhu’s death was announced by the spokesperson of the opposition National Patriotic Front (NPF), Jealousy Mawarire who posted on Twitter saying:
“Receiving sad news that former Deputy Minister of Lands and Rural Resettlement, Tendai Savanhu, is no more. MHDSRIP.”
