Another senior ZAPU member dies

ZAPU National Secretary for Security, Canaan Ncube, has died.

He was 80.

Ncube passed away on Monday morning at a local hospital.

ZAPU southern region communications director, Patrick Ndlovu confirmed to CITE that the party had lost another of their dedicated senior members.

“Ncube had not been feeling well for some time and was in and out of hospital. He is among a number of DD’s (Dumiso Dabengwa) comrades to pass away this year after the death of their commander,” he said.

During the liberation struggle, Ncube served in the party’s armed wing –ZPRA under Intelligence with the late national hero, Dr Dumiso Dabengwa, who was the chief intelligence supremo.

Ncube was also ZAPU’s first provincial chairman after the party pulled out of the Unity Accord after the 2008 elections, said the information director.

“He retired from work (was general manager at Supersonic) and was into farming. For more information burial, we await for his family to update us,” Ndlovu said.

Mourners are gathered at his residence in 26 Sherwood Road, Woodlands.
