ZIMBABWE’S foreign affairs minister Sibusiso Moyo died Wednesday, a day after testing positive to Covid-19, acting chief secretary to the president and cabinet George Charamba said in a statement.

A close family member of Moyo also confirmed the death to journalists.

‘It’s true. Covid-19. He tested positive yesterday,’ the family member said.

He becomes the third government minister to succumb to Covid-19 since the pandemic hit the country in March 2020.

The retired army Lieutenant-General was the face of the military operation that ousted former President Robert Mugabe in Nov. 2019 and went on to be part of current President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration.
