Air Zimbabwe official found dead in Botswana


A senior Air Zimbabwe official has been found dead in a bush in neighbouring Botswana, state media report.

Shingai Dhliwayo who was a public relations executive with the national carrier had travelled to Botswana for personal business on April 30 where she was eventually found dead in a bush by police.

The deceased’s parents identified their daughter’s body in a hospital mortuary on Saturday, and her body is yet to be taken back home.

“Details of her death are still very sketchy. What I can say is that she travelled to Botswana on personal business last Saturday soon after the Trade Fair intending to come back the following day and she never came back,” Chris Kwenda, the airline’s passenger and cargo general manager was quoted as saying by the Herald Newspaper.

The newspaper quoted some unnamed sources suggesting that Dhliwayo could have been murdered by assailants.
