Yesterday we managed to locate and get medical help for our party member, an elderly woman who was caught on film while being brutally assaulted by ZRP.
She has now been taken to theatre by a neurosurgeon after a CT scan showed that she bled into the brain. She has a blood clot in the brain.
The MDC is working tirelessly to make sure she gets the best possible medical care. The ZRP assault of an elderly, unarmed and defenceless woman is uncouth and deplorable; we will pursue justice for our member
