Two MDC members have been hospitalised after they were abducted and

assaulted by Zanu PF hooligans in Kuwadzana and Mbare.

Mary Pamire is recovering from injuries sustained after she was abducted by
three Zanu PF supporters in Kuwadzana and driven to an unknown place. Pamire
said she was travelling from the city centre to Kuwadzana at night last
Thursday and upon disembarking from a kombi she was abducted by the three
Zanu PF hooligans driving in a tinted vehicle.

They drove her to a secluded place where she was severely assaulted the
whole night. She was released the following day and sought treatment at a
local hospital where she is still admitted. Another activist, Johannes Dehwe
was admitted into hospital after being kidnapped by the notorious Zanu PF
wing Chipangano at Mbare Musika on Saturday.

Dehwe is the MDC Ward 4 Nyanga North chairperson and was on his way from
Nyanga to attend the MDC 12th anniversary celebrations at Gwanzura Stadium.
His ribs were fractured during the assault.

Meanwhile, Shakespeare Mukoyi, the MDC Harare province Youth Assembly
chairperson who was arrested in April and charged with assaulting a police
officer in Glen Norah was acquitted last week at the Mbare Magistrates’

Mukoyi was arrested on 9 April during a church service to pray for peace at
the Nazarene Church in Glen Norah. The peace prayer was however disrupted by
the police who violently dispersed the congregants who included church,
civic and community leaders.

Mukoyi was arrested during the disturbances and was charged with assaulting
a police officer, Emmanuel Jeketera with clinched fists and booted feet.
Prosecutors alleged that Jeketera suffered a swollen lower lip and
lacerations of the lower lip as a result of the assault.

However, Magistrate Rebecca Kavhiya acquitted Mukoyi after a full trial
which commenced last month.
