The MDC-T has reported that scores of their members were injured after they
were assaulted by armed soldiers at a rally in Zhombe, Midlands North
province.

The rally was being held at Empress Business Centre in Zhombe district and
was being addressed by the Zhombe MP, Rodgers Tazviona.

The soldiers were deployed in the area allegedly for Robert Mugabe’s maize
seed distribution programme, which has attracted much criticism in recent
weeks for being partisan. Only ZANU PF members are considered beneficiaries.

In a statement the MDC-T said: “The armed soldiers ran amok and started
assaulting the MDC members at the rally. Some of the injured have since been
transferred to hospital”.

The party said police from Kwekwe were notified of the incident but have not
acted to investigate or make arrests.
