FORMER Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) Commissioner-General Retired Major-General Paradzai Zimondi has died.

The retired Major-General has died from Covid-19, sources have confirmed.

Information gathered shows that Zimondi had tested Covid-19 positive two weeks ago, with a close friend who is a retired colonel. It appeared he was recovering, but he deteriorated and succumbed to the virus, leading to his death.

Zimondi was a ZNA Major-General and a senior commander in the liberation struggle. He was the ZANLA Commander for Manica Province.

Last year, Zimondi urged prison officers to shun corruption, saying the scourge was worse than coronavirus.

Maj-Gen (Rtd) Zimondi said this during his farewell visit to Bindura Prison. Zimondi retired from Prisons after being at the helm of ZPCS for 22 years.

Major-Gen (Rtd) Zimondi was succeeded by Comm-Gen Moses Chihobvu.
Zimondi was key in the security structure.
