Former Zimbabwe National Army Chief of Staff, Major General Trust Mugoba has been confirmed died, a few hours after the death of the ex-president, Robert Mugabe.
KanyiDaily had reported earlier that Robert Mugabe passed away at the age of 95 in Singapore where he had been seeking treatment for a long illness.
Major General Mugoba also died at a private hospital in Harare early this morning and the cause of his death is yet to be disclosed.
Zimbabwe spokesman, Nick Mangwana, who confirmed his death said:
“Mugoba passed away early this morning at a private hospital in Harare a week after he was admitted with an undisclosed ailment.”
The Army General left his post in March 2017 after he was seconded to the AU where he assumed the position of Chief of Staff of continental-stand-by Force.
It was only months after Mugoba’s departure that Zimbabwe’s military moved against longtime ruler Robert Mugabe, ousting him in a coup in November 2017.
