Former Zanu-PF MP Kidnapped, Ordered To Withdraw Candidature Against Mnangagwa’s Nephew

Suspected Zanu-PF supporters kidnapped the party’s former Harare South MP, Shadreck Mashayamombe on Wednesday and demanded that he withdraws his candidature from the constituency before taking his Parliament-issued Chevrolet vehicle and dumping it along the Harare-Bulawayo Highway.

Mashayamombe told NewsDay that he was ambushed at Avondale Shopping Centre on Wednesday evening around 10pm by three armed men and one woman in a Honda Fit without registration plates. He said his kidnappers told him to withdraw his candidature against President Mnangagwa’s nephew Tongai. Said Mashayamombe:

Three men came out of the Honda Fit, demanded my car keys and forced me out of the car. They blindfolded me and drove off with me in my car. They parked the car and told me they had an instruction to dump me in Kariba Dam if I don’t want to withdraw my candidature against the President’s nephew. They later removed the blindfold and I saw one man with a gun, the other one with a metal rod, while the other two were unarmed. I could not recognise any one of them.

Mashayamombe said he did not report the matter to the police because they had not taken action when he reported several cases since November last year when he was kidnapped by the military.
