Chamisa Condemns Attempted Abduction Of Tererai Sithole By 8 Gunmen

MDC leader Nelson Chamisa has castigated the attempted abduction of youth league leader, Tererai Obey Sithole during an evening prayer meeting organised by the Zimbabwe Council of Churches (ZCC) in Harare.

Writing on Twitter on Thursday, Chamisa castigated State terrorism and severe violence towards citizens. He said:

The attempted abduction on MDC youth leader, Obey Sithole by unknown men with unmarked vehicles, armed with AK 47 guns is both a reminder and a confirmation that Zimbabwe, being unsafe for its citizens and visitors, is a country under extreme terrorism and severe violence.

In a statement issued on Thursday morning, ZCC said:

After the conclusion of the programme and a light snack, people started making their way out of the venue sometime after 2100hrs.

It is around this time that an attempted abduction of MDC officials who were part of the panel took place in full view of the guests who included women from various churches who were part of the event.

About Five (5) to eight (8) gun-wielding men in 2 motor vehicles, a Toyota Rav-4, and a White Toyota Quantum minibus were involved in this violent act.

However, their efforts were foiled by members of the officials’ entourage. This incident was reported to the police.

… as the church body that had created such a sacred and safe space for respectful engagement, we feel such acts of violence violate all forms of decency and should be condemned in the strongest of terms.

  1. could have been stage managed to highlight August 1st commemorations. we can’t put it beyond an MDC that’s so determined for a GNU. questions must be asked questions on the security arrangements of the meet. if the state wasn’t providing such, then the “vanguard” had ample opportunity to cast their members as victims of some plot by the state.
