MDC Midlands provincial spokesperson, Takavafira Zhou, has revealed that two senior MDC activists in Mberengwa have gone into hiding following abduction attempts by suspected State security agents. This comes two weeks after two senior MDC officials in Gokwe, Prince Paradza and Edify Vushoma went missing.
The Mberengwa activists were being accused of mobilising rural voters to desert the ruling Zanu PF party for the opposition movement whilst their Gokwe counterparts had earlier been accused by suspected State security agents of pulling down Mnangagwa’s campaign poster at Gokwe centre bus terminus.
We are certainly perturbed by the continued bullish, callousness, and harassment of innocent civilians exercising their freedom of association, which is guaranteed in the Constitution. We reiterate our long-held view that security intelligence in the 21st century has moved from thuggery and barbarism to use of intellect. Prince Paradza and Edify Vushoma had earlier been accused by suspected State security agents of pulling down a Mnangagwa campaign poster at Gokwe centre bus terminus.
Witnesses who spoke to the News Day revealed that three men driving a Nissan Hardbody truck ambushed Mashura on Monday. They say that the suspecting Mashura asked to be excused as he wanted to visit the toilet. The men followed but he outpaced them and jumped over the fence at his workplace.
