A Mudzi member of the MDC-T was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment
on Friday. Over a week ago he had been injured in a violent attack by a ZANU
PF supporter.

Titus Kaneupandu who is in his sixties, suffered injuries to his head, arms
and back after an axe wielding ZANU PF supporter attacked him last week
Thursday. At the time of the attack, Kaneupandu was walking home following a
government sponsored meeting about peace and democracy that was held in
Mudzi.

The meeting, hosted by the Joint Monitoring and Implementation Committee
(JOMIC), encouraged members across the political divide to join together to
talk about a peaceful future for Zimbabwe.

But the lesson was short lived and a notorious ZANU PF thug, Brian
Kazingizi, followed Kaneupandu after the JOMIC meeting and attacked him.

The MDC-T member had originally received treatment at Murerwa hospital and
also reported the incident to the police, who have done nothing.

SW Radio Africa’s Harare correspondent Simon Muchemwa reported Friday that
Kaneupandu has been hospitalised at the Avenues Clinic for emergency
treatment after his condition deteriorated over the past week. Muchemwa
spoke to Kaneupandu in hospital, who said he believes the attack was not
random.

“He believes there was a political motive for the attack. Brian Kazingizi is
a notorious thug in the community who has previously been involved in
attacks on MDC supporters. Kazingizi is also the son of ZANU PF’s district
commissar in the area,” Muchemwa explained.
