Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Makomeke said the bones of Paul Zimunda, who died at the age of 33, were discovered on Monday by a hunter in Unze Mountain, in Zipeya Village, under Chief Nyashanu.
Zimunda had his metal identification card on him.
His whereabouts remained a mystery after he was abducted by a gang of the notorious militia who were violently drumming up support for ageing President Robert Mugabe while stifling any voices of dissent.
A neighbour said Zimunda, an ardent MDC supporter, was last seen at the village head’s place where he had gone to seek refuge from the marauding terror gang. But they suspect he was abducted there as the village head is also a ZANU PF loyalist.
“After the ZANU PF supporters kept on nagging him, Paul went to the village head’s place to seek refuge. That was the last we heard of him. But other villagers told us that his assailants were also seen at the village head’s place,” said the neighbour, who preferred to remain anonymous for fear of victimisation.
Pauls’ parents are also late. He has no other known relatives.
MDC-T Manicaland provincial chairman, Patrick Chitaka, told Radio VOP that the Zanu PF youths also turned Zimunda’s house into a torture base after they executed him.
“After the disappearance of Paul, his parents’ house was turned into a torture base for suspected MDC-T supporters in the run up to last’s year’s bloody June 27 elections. His parents are late, and nobody was left to look after his house,” Chitaka said.
Chitaka said they expect to give Zimunda a decent burial Tuesday. Radio VOP
