Chataika’s daughter Shamiso confirmed the death.
“My father passed on early around 2am from diabetes. He had been at home for the past week after he was discharged from hospital,” Shamiso said.

Chipangano was an infamous violent group of youth who were Zanu-PF enforcers at the public markets, particularly the Mbare bus terminus, Carter House, Mupedzanhamo flea-market and the vegetable market.
They allocated selling space and chucked out suspected opposition supporters from vending sites.
Among its known leaders was Jim Kunaka, who has since joined the Zimbabwe People First party led by former vice-president Joice Mujuru.
Kunaka was not immediately available for comment as his mobile phone went unanswered.
