ZANU PF Youths Attack Chamisa Like Wild Animals In Masvingo

The opposition MDC has alleged that Nelson Chamisa's convoy has been attacked by ZANU PF Youths on his way to Masvingo. Posting through their Twitter account, MDC said, "Over 200 youths mobilized by ZANU PF have violently attacked President Chamisa's convoy & advance team on their way to meet community leaders in Masvingo. They stoned cars, barricaded roads with burning logs & assaulted members of our team who've now been hospitalized."

MDC-A leader Nelson Chamisa’s convoy has allegedly been attacked by purported ZANU PF youths in Charumbira, Masvingo Province earlier this morning, October 11.

Journalist, Hopewell Chin’ono reported the incident with pictures of the damaged cars from the convoy making rounds on social media.

The MDCA statement reads:

“Over 200 youths mobilized by ZANU PF have violently attacked President Chamisa’s convoy & advance team on their way to meet community leaders in Charumbira, Masvingo Province. They stoned cars, barricaded roads with burning logs & assaulted members of our team who’ve now been hospitalized.

Cars were seen ferrying the rented crowd and co-ordinating the attacks as violent thugs held up printed posters.

This political violence is cause for extreme concern and a clear act of desperation by a bankrupt, illegitimate regime that has failed.

They are terrified of the unstoppable groundswell of citizen support for President Chamisa & the broad alliance forming in every village and every town to win Zimbabwe for change.

President Chamisa is currently embarking on a community citizens’ conversation interface in various provinces in line with our Agenda 2021.

The tour will see him engage citizens, civic leaders and special interest groups as we strengthen the broad alliance to win Zimbabwe for change.”

 

THE opposition Movement for Democratic Change Alliance claims that over 200 youth mobilised by the ruling Zanu PF party have attacked Nelson Chamisa’s convoy and advance team on their way to meet community leaders in Charumbira area of Masvingo Province.

In a statement, the MDC Alliance said: “They stoned cars, barricaded roads with burning logs & assaulted members of our team who’ve now been hospitalized. Cars were seen ferrying the rented crowd and co-ordinating the attacks as violent thugs held up printed posters.”

A vehicle belonging to the MDC Alliance was among several cars that were stoned by Zanu PF supporters in Masvingo.

“A crowd of drunken youths at the scene are saying they were sent by Ezra Chadzamira (Masvingo Provincial Affairs Minister) whom they say was sent by Mnangagwa. President Chamisa has been taken to a safe haven.”

“This political violence is cause for extreme concern and a clear act of desperation by a bankrupt, illegitimate regime that has failed. They are terrified of the unstoppable groundswell of citizen support for President Chamisa & the broad alliance forming in every village and every town to win Zimbabwe for change.”

Police were unavailable for comment. Indications are that the police have stormed a place where the MDC Alliance was holding a meeting.

In a tweet, the party said: “Riot police have stormed a private meeting being held in Masvingo at the private residence of MDC A provincial member, Leader Chitemere. No explanation was given as to why the police would disrupt a private meeting that in no way offends Covid regulations or any law.”
