He died on Saturday from Covid-19 related complications.

Masamvu was 62.

The former legislator was a well-known businessman in Marondera, Bindura and Manicaland Province. 

When he would be buried, only 30 people will be allowed to gather for the funeral due to the Covid-19 lockdown regulations.

“It is a very sad day for the entire Masamvu family. We have lost a big family man who also served his country in Parliament,”

Masamvu’s close friend, Misheck Mugadza, told the Sunday Mail,

“We have lost an accomplished businessman, a family man and personal mentor. Mr Masamvu’s deeds testify to the kind of a man he was.”

Zanu PF politician and Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation Deputy Minister Tinoda Machakaire also said that Masamvu’s death was a huge loss to the nation.

“I was really saddened to learn of the untimely passing on of the former Honourable MP and businessman Cde LP Masamvu. I am praying for the family at this trying time. Losing a loved father is not easy at all. The wound never heals. My prayer for the family is that they find the strength to keep going.”
