NPF’s sole MP ‘Blackman’ dies

Blackman during 2018 election campaigns

Opposition National Patriotic Front (NPF) Member of Parliament for Kwekwe Central, Masango “black man” Matambanadzo has died.

The party ‘s spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire on social media this Tuesday announced:

Receiving very sad news that our legislator, our only MP, Hon Masango Matambanadzo is no more. It’s a very sad day for the party and for the country. The party will issue a full statement later.

The cause of death could not, however, be ascertained.

Early in this year, 11 February 2020, Blackman revealed that he was flown to China in 2019 for treatment after his skin turned yellow when he fell ill following suspected food poisoning.

“My body changed into yellow in one day when I fell sick,” Matambanadzo said.

“I want to thank you for your support and prayers. I did not imagine the kind of support that I received.”

Matambanadzo’s death comes at a time Parliament suspended business owing to two MPs having diagnosed for covid-19.
