MDC-T Involved In More Cases Of Political Violence Than Zanu-PF: Zimbabwe Peace Project

The human rights non-governmental organisation, the Zimbabwe Peace Project (ZPP)’s report for the month of June shows that the MDC-T was involved in more cases of political violence than Zanu-PF. MDC-T was reported to have been involved in 16 cases while Zanu-F was involved in  3 cases. Part of the report reads,

Of the 19 cases of intra-party violence, 16 of them were recorded in the MDC-T and the remaining three by Zanu PF, and this was attributed to the chaotic primary elections in almost all political outfits. An aspiring candidate was also detained for two days before Nomination Court making it impossible for him to submit his papers in time.

…The opposition party expects to win urban seats and wards easily and this has intensified jostling and congestion of candidates vying for the ‘safe’ seats within perceived opposition strongholds. Bulawayo and Harare which are opposition strongholds recorded many incidents of intra-party violence involving MDC-T primary elections.
