ZANU PF youths have threatened to invade the homes of senior MDC officials and loot their property, accusing them of causing the suffering of ordinary citizens through calling for the imposition of sanctions by Western countries.
Coordinator of the Zanu PF-linked youth pressure group, Citizens Concerned, Taurai Kandishaya told NewZimbabwe.com that they have finalised arrangements to invade MDC president Nelson Chamisa’s rural Gutu home and feast on his cattle and goats. Said Kandishaya:
In Gutu, our team said they are ready. Chamisa’s rural home has cattle and goats, we will eat those if they do not feed us. We will be safe.
We will not be carrying any food, we will eat at his home and use his toilets. Some of these people think we do not have their addresses, let them wait for the weekend and they will see for sure we know where they stay.
We had a meeting with our constituency coordinators on Wednesday to determine the amount of fuel available, tents and blankets just in case they do not allow us in and drums for our entertainment. I can safely say our preparations are on 80% now.
Meanwhile, MDC Vice-Chairperson Job Sikhala told the publication that he has also mobilised party youths to protect his home and has since moved his family to a safer place.
