He died in Harare on Sunday after battling cancer.
Nyoni spent the greater part of last year on an indefinite sick leave.
Last October, Southern Eye reported from a confidential report that Nyoni elected to take a two-phased leave for the period covering August 1 to 21 and November 10 to 28.
He travelled to India to seek medical attention.
Chamber secretary Sikhangele Zhou acted as acting town clerk.
While on sick leave, council official plotted to oust Nyoni on the basis that he had taken too long to assume his duties yet he was still on the council’s payroll.
