Former ZANU PF spokesperson, Rugare Gumbo has revealed that the former president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe ill treated them during the liberation struggle.
Speaking to the Daily News, Gumbo revealed that Mugabe would punish others for merely having a diverging view. Said Gumbo:
We were treated like dogs. We spent at least three months detained in holes dug in an open place which were closed from the top at about 5 pm, only to be reopened the following morning.
The holes were six metres deep and four metres wide. It was hell on earth and we all thought we were going to die.
At one point the holes were filled with soil and only our heads were left protruding out. But we all survived the ordeal.
Gumbo was incarcerated alongside the likes of the late Henry Hamadziripi, former police commissioner general Augustine Chihuri, former ZBC chief executive Happison Muchechetere and Mukudzei Mudzi.
