ZANU PF supporters in Chiredzi on Thursday received mealie meal at night after MDC supporters led by MDC MP (Proportional Representation), Mucharairwa Mugidho had disrupted the partisan distribution of the product during the day.
Following the abandonment of the distribution process earlier in the day, the ZANU PF leadership dished out the mealie meal at night.

Mugidho confirmed to NewsDay that the MDC team had tracked the truck ferrying mealie-meal throughout the day. He said:
Yes, we forced the distribution to be abandoned after we realised that it was only meant for Zanu PF supporters.
They had to distribute at night because they were afraid of my team which was monitoring the whole process.
I called the district development co-ordinator (DDC), Lovemore Chisema, complaining about the procedure.
Meanwhile, Chisema expressed outrage over ZANU PF’s partisan distribution of food, calling on the leadership to show maturity and distribute food to everyone regardless of his or her political affiliation.
