Zanu PF militia besiege Mbare
Zanu PF youths armed with machetes and logs have gone on the rampage in Mbare indiscriminately attacking residents following President Nelson Chamisa’s highly successful address to the Nation delivered at Stodart Hall in the township yesterday.
The Zanu PF youths have run amok and wreaked havoc by attacking residents and dispersing any group of innocent residents going about their business. The MP for the area, Hon. Starman Chamisa is reportedly holed up in a police station, hiding from the marauding gang. He has just tweeted saying he was still holed up in the police station as the machete-wielding youths continue to bay for his blood.
Hon. Chamisa was holed up in the police station where he had gone to check up on party supporters who has been needlessly arrested in the morning before the rowdy youths turned up to cause commotion at the station.
