MDC-T accuses Zanu-PF supporters of blocking its rural campaign by intimidating villagers

Posted by Tayana

MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu has accused Zanu-PF supporters of blocking its rural campaign by threatening villagers who dare associate with the opposition party.

Said Gutu:

The feedback we are getting is that most, if not all, rural areas remain outposts of Zanu PF tyranny and intimidation. Villagers are living in fear of their lives because they are constantly reminded that supporting any opposition political parties, particularly the MDC, is treasonous and that they will be beaten up and victimised if they attend any opposition political parties’ rallies and other functions.

However, Zanu PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo urged the MDC-T to report cases of intimidation to the police.
