Mugabe Biographer Shamuyarira Dies Before Completing Dreaded Memoir

The full story of Robert Mugabe will now never be told in full after his biographer died before completing the history which many Zimbabweans are awaiting with dread.
Former journalist and information minister Nathan Shamuyarira died of complications from a chest infection at West End hospital in Harare Wednesday, according to his family, putting the book project into doubt.
Shamuyarira was given rare permission to write the Mugabe biography in 2010. Mugabe has previously refused to have an official biography written. He only agreed in the twilight of his life after noting that party officials who could contradict his version of events had died, according to sources.
With Shamuyarira’s death, a crucial chapter in Mugabe’s controversial rise to the helm of Zanu PF will now never be read.
