Several ZANU PF supporters were allegedly assaulted and seriously injured by suspected CCC activists at Mtora Growth Point, Gokwe-Nembudziya, on Sunday, 12 February.
According to ZBC News, the injured ZANU PF supporters were ferried to Gokwe North District Hospital for medical attention.
The ZANU PF members were reportedly attending a voter registration mobilisation and awareness meeting when they attacked.
The ruling party has condemned the attack which it blamed on the Citizens’ Coalition for Change. ZANU PF tweeted:
We condemn in strongest terms, the violence meted out against our supporters in Gokwe by Mr. Chamisa’s CCC hooligans. That has no place in our society.
President @edmnangagwa has called for peaceful political mobilisations. Let the Law take decide. We pray for their quick recovery!
Police were yet to issue a statement, but reports indicate that one person has been arrested.
