CHIPINGE- Former Chipinge Town Council Chair and Ward 6 Councillor Lovemore Juro Mukwapati died around 3 am this morning at Chipinge District Hospital after a heart complication. He was 71.
His child Godwin confirmed the death to Chipinge Times in a telephone interview. He said they rushed him to the hospital with breathing challenges.
Godwin said mourners are gathered at C1149 Gaza Township and the family is yet to deliberate on burial arrangements.
“We are saddened by the untimely death of our father. He was a cheerful person who was pro-development,”
