Soldiers Sjambok Villagers After Break-in At Minister July Moyo’s Homestead

Villagers from Humbani area, Mberengwa West, Midlands province, were reportedly sjamboked by armed soldiers last week after thieves broke into Local Government Minister July Moyo’s rural home and stole groceries.

One of Moyo’s neighbours told that the minister’s sister and a caretaker stay at the homestead. Villagers speaking on condition of anonymity said:

There was a break-in at Minister July Moyo’s homestead. The thieves stole groceries, which had just been delivered. I think the thieves or thief must have seen them being delivered.

… The police first attended the crime scene and then soldiers came and assaulted the villagers accusing them of stealing the groceries. One old man who was assaulted severely was caught cycling his bicycle.

Meanwhile, Moyo told that he was yet to be informed about the incident.
