The ruling party, Zanu-PF has dismissed reports that JD Hungwe, the secretary for Production and Labour in the Politburo has died.

Speaking to the Party, National Spokesperson Cde Ambassador SK Moyo confirmed that Hungwe is alive.

“Those behind such fake news need our prayers. Let us all direct our energies to organising a powerful, exuberant and successful virtual 19th Annual People’s conference in October as we prepare our people for 2023 harmonised elections,” said SK Moyo.

“Our people may need to know that Cde JD Hungwe as usual attended the 354th Ordinary Session of the Politburo held last Saturday the 4th of September 2021 where he articulated his department’s revised strategy on building relations with labour movements locally and abroad. As such we call upon those behind such fake news to mature in their political conduct and embrace Ubuntu values which abhor wishing others dead,” said SK Moyo
