MURDER accused Zanu-PF central committee member Jonathan Nhamburo, who mysteriously died on Tuesday at Parirenyatwa hospital, has been granted provincial hero status by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

His hero status comes at a time there had been a huge uproar over the police's reluctance to arrest him for running over and killing a Citizen Coalition for change (CCC) supporter on by-election day last month.

According to a statement shared by party secretary for information Obert Mpofu, Nhamburo will be buried at the Bindura provincial heroes acre.

"His Excellency the President and the first secretary of Zanu-PF Mnangagwa has conferred a Liberation Hero status to late central committee member, Jonathan Nhamburo who died 5 April 2022 and will be buried at the Provincial Heroes Acre, Bindura," Mpofu said.

Nhamburo had been part of a closely knit Mashonaland Central Zanu-PF unit that had been accused of terrorising villagers and opposition members.
