MDC-T official abducted as ZPF crackdown continues
By Tererai Karimakwenda
The MDC-T has reported that Tendai Chinyama, their organising secretary for Kambuzuma district, was abducted Wednesday afternoon at the Harare City Council Bishop Gaul Depot, by three armed men.
In a statement the party said Chinyama’s whereabouts remain unknown. But they do know that his abductors were driving a Mitsubishi L200 cream twin-cab.
The MDC-T continues to be victimized by ZANU PF despite calls for peace by regional leaders. A communiqué issued by SADC after the summit in Livingstone back in March urged Zimbabwe’s political parties to create an environment conducive to holding credible elections.
But it appears that ZANU PF is ignoring the regional call for peace. At least 20 MDC-T members remain in police custody facing trumped-up charges related to the recent murder of a policeman. And the Zimbabwe Human Rights Forum reported this week that more torture bases have been set up around the country.
