MDC A president Nelson Chamisa was supposed to address his supporters in Masvingo when he was stopped from doing so by a gang of youth .
Chamisa took to his twitter saying:
BARBARIC & DESPERATE..Mr ED STOP this violence.STOP this abuse of the police &the state to persecute & disrupt the opposition.STOP dividing people and destroying this beautiful country.STOP buying and paying some who pretend to be opposition.We & the CHANGE WAVE are unstoppable!
Journalist Hopewell Chin’ono also shared MDC A statement and it says
“Over 200 youths mobilized by have violently attacked President Chamisa’s convoy & advance team on their way to meet community leaders in Charumbira, Masvingo Province. They stoned cars, barricaded roads with burning logs & assaulted members of our team who’ve now been hospitalized.
Cars were seen ferrying the rented crowd and co-ordinating the attacks as violent thugs held up printed posters.
This political violence is cause for extreme concern and a clear act of desperation by a bankrupt, illegitimate regime that has failed.
They are terrified of the unstoppable groundswell of citizen support for President Chamisa & the broad alliance forming in every village and every town to win Zimbabwe for change.
President Chamisa is currently embarking on a community citizens’ conversation interface in various provinces in line with our Agenda 2021.
The tour will see him engage citizens, civic leaders and special interest groups as we strengthen the broad alliance to win Zimbabwe for change.”
