Speaking to The Zimbabwean last week, concerned residents perceived to be
MDC-T supporters, said the youthful and overzealous soldiers, who were
always drunk, were using threats and physical violence to terrorise them.

The uniformed and armed soldiers, led by well known war veterans, are
reportedly intimidating known MDC supporters in an effort to suppress the
people’s vote in the envisaged elections.

“People are being told to forget about the government of national unity.
They are telling us that the MDC is no longer part of the inclusive
government and that it will not participate in the forthcoming elections,”
said a villager.

Affected MDC-T supporters said they were reporting the cases of violence to
the police at Tsanzaguru Police station, but nothing was being done.
