Zimbabwe’s Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusisio Moyo has succumbed to Covid-19, an official confirmed on Wednesday.

The former top soldier, famed for announcing the November 2017 coup that removed late President Robert Mugabe, had been unwell for some time. Acting Chief Secretary to The President and Cabinet George Charamba, in a statement said: “The late Minister succumbed to Covid-19 at a local hospital.”

Moyo is the latest top government official to succumb to the deadly disease following the weekend death of Manicaland provincial affairs minister Ellen Gwaradzimba.

Perrance Shiri, another of the top military commanders who organised the 2017 coup, also died from Covid-19 last year. He was agriculture minister at the time.

As at 19 January 2021, Zimbabwe had 28 675 confirmed cases, including 18 110 recoveries and 825 deaths.
