Constable Alexio Maune (32), who was based at Entumbane Police Station was buried on Saturday at his rural home in Matsikidze Village, Chief Shumba in Masvingo.
Maune died last Tuesday on admission to the United Bulawayo Hospitals after being stoned by violent protestors. Speaking during Maune’s burial, Masvingo war veterans provincial chair Tendeukai Chinooneka, who represented the Minister of State for Masvingo Provincial Affairs Ezra Chadzamira, equated the MDC Alliance and its allies to Selous Scouts. Said Chinooneka:
What the MDC-Alliance and its partners are doing shows that we still have Selous Scouts amongst us 38 years after independence. The violent culture of the MDC-Alliance is very worrying. Their behaviour is very unAfrican. Why use violence against innocent people in an attempt to ascend to power? The whole world now knows them for what they really are.
