Two men were severely assaulted last Wednesday afternoon by overzealous
members of the Central Intelligence Office in a Dangamvura-bound commuter
omnibus after they heavily criticized President Robert Mugabe’s failure to
share the country’s diamond wealth.

In an incident witnessed by this paper, the two assaulted men, John
Magorokosho and Shame Muzariwetu were openly discussing how the vast mineral
wealth in Marange has been plundered by President Mugabe and his wife Grace,
together with selected Zanu (PF) top brass, the army generals and the
Chinese firms.

This did not go down well with the two CIO officers who told them to change
the subject.

Magorokosho said: “This is a democratic country and one is entitled to
freedom of expression. We are living in a new Zimbabwe with an inclusive
government hence, we are exercising our rights.”

The statement then angered the two officers who ordered the Kombi driver to
stop the vehicle at a roadblock at Mutare Teachers College. The two officers
then grabbed Magorokosho and Muzariwetu and one of them said: “We want to
show you that we are the ones running the affairs of this country. You think
you are smart? We want

to teach you a good lesson and you will be a good case study to others.”

The CIO officers ordered the kombi to proceed with its journey while they

Magorokosho and Muzariwetu to a nearby shed. The Zimbabwean does not have
information about what happened to the two, but believes that they were
taken to the CIO offices at the government complex in the city
