Zanu PF Masvingo Provincial political commissar Jevas Masosota confirmed Omar’s death.
“I just received the details of his death right now. Finer details of what exactly happened will be given once the party gets more details,” Masosota told NewsDay.
In 2019 , Mwenezi East villagers condemned Omar saying he had done very little to improve the lives of the marginalized families in the constituency.
In racially-charged statements, villagers say they regret electing Omar, a Coloured, into office, claiming he was not in touch with the real issues affecting ordinary people in the constituency.
