Siziba wrote, "Our Change Champion, Bishop Tapfumaneyi Masaya, who was abducted in Mabvuku while campaigning, has been found dead.

"They recalled a legitimately elected MP of Mabvuku, Hon. Kufa. Today, this has cost an innocent life. He shall have justice."

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said a body had been found at the intersection of Arcturus and Lobho Road in the Cleveland area in Harare but was yet to identified.

"Zimbabwe Republic Police is conducting investigations in connection with the location of a body at the intersection of Arcturus and Lobho Road, Cleveland area, Harare on 12th November 2023.

"The identity of the victim is yet to be established. More details will be released in due course," Nyathi said.

However, CCC Harare Ward 16 councillor Denford Ngadziore on X said the unidentified body was that of Masaya.

"Zanu-PF  killed our Champion who was abducted in Mabvuku. MHSRP," Ngadziore wrote.
