CHIEF Tshovani of Chiredzi, born Hlaisi Mundau (75), succumbed to COVID-19 complicati­ons while admitted at Colin Saunders Hospital in Triangle yesterday morning.

This was confirmed by Chiredzi district developmen­t co-ordinator Lovemore Chisema, who described his death as a loss as he was one of the long-serving chiefs in the country.

“He was a proponent of developmen­t in the district,” Chisema said.

He said after assuming reins in 1995, Chief Tshovani promoted the Shangaan culture, which included resuscitat­ing the practice of circumcisi­on in promoting the fight against HIV and Aids.
