Protest group Tajamuka-Sesijikile has said that is has deployed “a crack team” of its members to Chitungwiza’s Unit N area to protect residents. This comes after opposition MDC-T supporters
have been attacked by suspected Zanu-PF youths over voter registration. The alleged Zanu-PF youths are demanding that MDC-T activists should surrender serial numbers of voter slips to them. They are allegedly threatening people saying they can use the serial numbers to monitor the voting process in next year’s general elections.
Part of a statement released by the group reads:
The crack team has been in Chitungwiza since morning (Tuesday) doing their surveillance in the area. We would like to thank the other Zanu PF faction which assisted us with necessary information soon after their meeting at Makoni Shopping Centre this afternoon (Tuesday) for being very cooperative.
We want to assure all opposition supporters in Chitungwiza to remain calm as the young people’s movement is in the area to protect all citizens. Where government fails to honour its responsibility to protect citizens, the young peoples’ Campaign will deliver peace for citizens of Zimbabwe.
