Kwekwe City Council Deputy Mayor Councillor Shadreck Tobaiwa has died.
Tobaiwa, who served as Mayor of the mining city between 2008 and 2013, succumbed to prostate cancer at his Amaveni home.
He was 76.
Tobaiwa’s daughter Ms Judith Tobaiwa confirmed his death.
“We are still in a state of shock as a family, we have lost a father, one whom we could turn to in times of need, a pillar of strength. We are yet to come to terms with his death as it happened so sudden,” said Ms Tobaiwa.
Tobaiwa will be buried at Fichtlea Cemetery tomorrow Friday.
Kwekwe Mayor Councillor Angeline Kasipo described the late Tobaiwa as a humble person.
