Zimbabwe’s first black governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Dr Kombo Moyana has died, Nhau has learnt.
He is believed to have succumbed to Covid-19, having been in and out of hospital in recent months due to other illnesses.
Close family members told Nhau that his house has been sealed off to allow necessary Covid-19 health protocols to take place for the safety of mourners.
Burial arrangements are not yet known. Moyana headed the apex bank for a decade between 1983 and 1993.
The second wave of coronavirus has hit Zimbabwe hard. Latest statistics from the Health Ministry show that Covid-19 claimed a record 60 lives in 24 hours on Monday.
