Former cabinet minister and MDC Proportional Representation MP, Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga has revealed that she is getting death threats after she had appeared to criticise Morgan Tsvangirai in a radio interview. She has since reported the matter to the police. Said Misihairabwi-Mushonga,

I have become the subject of death threats and social media attacks by MDC-T activists, who seem to have been angered by comments I made during an interview with a local radio station.

It is a direct twin of (Zanu-PF Mbare-based terror group) Chipangano. They have hurled all manner of abuse at me and I have provided this to the police. It has been easy to track the local numbers, but some of the people are using foreign numbers. I have, therefore, approached the British and South African embassies for help.

…I am disappointed in Tsvangirai. I am disappointed that he would allow these people to take his name into the gutter, while he watches. It is a shame that we are not allowed to pass comments on someone who is bidding to be the leader of our country. I shudder to think what would happen if he happens to have State power at his disposal
