HARARE – Zanu-PF linked Chitungwiza land baron Fredrick Mabamba yesterday collapsed and died while in custody.
Mabamba (60) was at Chikurubi Remand Prison waiting for bail ruling following his arrest on charges linked to illegal land deals.
He collapsed while in prison and was rushed to Parirenyatwa hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
The former Zanu-PF member is said to have illegally acquired large tracts of land in Chitungwiza especially during his tenure as the town’s deputy mayor.
He was arrested last month as part of the blitz by the government targeting land barons following the massive land scandals exposed by the Uchena land audit report.
