The first born son of the late National Hero and Zanla Commander, Gen Josiah Magama Tongogara, Conrade Tongogara has died.

He was 59.

Sources close to the Tongogara family confirmed the latest sad development without giving much details.

Conrad is believed to have died in Harare in the early hours of this morning at an undisclosed location.

However in August this year, Angeline Tongogara the wife of the late Gen Tongogara told the media in Shurugwi Conrad was hospitalised at Charles Gumbo Barracks (formerly 1 Commando) due to skin cancer.

“Conrad is not feeling well, he got sick while at his farm in Lower Gweru.

” We decided to ferry him to Harare where he is currently getting some medical attention”, Amai Tongogara was quoted in August.

Conrad was a well-known farmer in Lower Gweru.

He recently gave out 15 hactares of his Haston farmland to the Mugodhi Apostolic Church, this for the church’ benefits.
