Three MDC activists abducted in Chegutu
Three MDC activists were abducted from their homes in Gadzema Township this
afternoon by some Zanu PF activists driving a White Nissan Elgrand. The
three are Tichaona Gombingo, Christon Banda and Masimba Madombwe.
The Zanu PF thugs, led by Judha and Giga, Zanu PF leaders in ward 21, drove
into the township this afternoon and rounded up residents in Gadzema
Township in search of MDC activists who attended an MDC provincial rally
which was held on Sunday in Chegutu East.
The whereabouts of the three are still unknown. The MDC fears for their
lives as Zanu PF has stepped up its violence activities as the nation heads
for a watershed election.
The incident comes barely a week after a group of Soldiers ran amok in
Zhombe and beat up elderly men and women for attending an MDC rally. Zanu
PF’s Jabulani Sibanda has been preaching violence in Nyanga. Lately Zanu PF
has stepped up its violent campaign against opposition leaders and members
putting prospects of a free and fair election next year into serious doubt.
It is disturbing that as the nation prepares for the watershed plebiscite
earmarked for next year, Zanu PF continues to perfect its machinery of
It is clear from these ugly scenes that Zanu PF is not committed to a
peaceful free and fair election next year. The sunset party is in a state of
panic and is determined to plunge the nation into chaos and bloodshed before
elections next year.
As MDC we remain committed to peaceful, free and fair environment before,
during and after 2013 elections. We call upon every responsible patriotic
citizen and international community to condemn these barbaric acts by Zanu
PF as we approach the all important 2013 plebiscite.
The Last Mile: Towards Real Transformation!!!
