A Zimbabwean army officer Major Mpumelelo Ngwenya died three days ago in South Africa when he was thrown from a flat.
Ngwenya was promoted to the position of Major on November 28 by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The events that led to his death are still sketchy as the family and the Zimbabwean government have not yet issued a statement regarding his death.
Posting an obituary, his friend Sindiso Mazibisa said, “Rest in power Major Mpumelelo Ngwenya. Soldiers don’t die. They Rest. Man like you were are a rare breed. A true Patriot, Husband, Father, Friend and Brother. From rural Gwanda to be a true General. May God unleash vengeance on your killers my brother. ..l.am pained after our last lengthy talk.
