According to sources, he was buried at a family farm and pictures circulating on social media show only a handful of people, wearing protective clothing, gathered for the burial.

Makamba is the son of prominent businessman and former Zanu PF heavyweight, James Makamba.

His death has caused panic in the highest corridors of power.

President Mnangagwa was Monday forced to abandon his Munhumutapa government offices for State House after the late Makamba had visited the offices last week and interacted with three of his staff members.
