Alert: MDC members attacked in Highfield West
Six MDC members were today hospitalised following a violent attack by Zanu
PF thugs in Highfield West last night around 10 pm. Three houses were
damaged in the same attack.
The six, Thulani Ncube, Shadrick Ngirazi, sisters, Maud and Tsitsi
Chinyerere, their two daughters, Rosie (14) and Nomatter (13), sustained
head and body injuries.
Hon. Hove was scheduled to address a rally in Highfield at the Western
Terminus where provincial leaders were to speak on, among other issues, the
conditions of a sustainable election in Zimbabwe.
According to Hon Hove, the six were assaulted with wooden blocks, booted
feet and other unknown objects.
“This attack is proof that there is no such thing as freedom of assembly and
association in Zimbabwe. This is clear evidence that Zanu PF is intolerant,
hateful and violent. We applied for a rally today at the Western Terminus
and this was approved. Zanu PF had shown discontent and was trying to
influence the police to change the venue. When this failed, they attacked
known MDC leaders and their families. This is evil,” he said.
He said, houses were attacked in New Canaan and Western Triangle.
Mrs Maud Chinyerere is a provincial executive member of the Women’s Assembly
