Moven Enock Mahachi (1948 – 26 May 2001) served as the Minister of Defence of the Republic of Zimbabwe. He was a close ally of Robert Mugabe within Z.A.N.U.-P.F.. Before becoming Defence Minister Mahachi served as M.P. for Makoni West. Mahachi was killed on 26 May 2001 when his Range Rover collided with a small car along the Mutare to Nyanga road.
