Zanu PF activists threaten violence on villagers who will vote for opposition

Zanu PF activists in Mutare South have threatened violence on villagers if they vote against the ruling party in this year's election.

Zimbabwe Peace Project reported in its latest report that a political meeting was held at Berzeley Bridge, in Mutare South.

"It is alleged that the meeting left most in fear as a result of the threats which were uttered at the meeting for people to vote for Zanu PF in the 2018 polls or face consequences. Gift Makoni of Nyachityu village ward 10 was one of the victims. Berzeley Bridge is in Mutare South under Chief Marange who also was allegedly not recognized by the guest speaker and Mutare West legislator Christopher Mushohwe," said ZPP.

"The villagers at the meeting were allegedly threatened and told that Mutare West was never going to hold any Zanu PF primary elections for the 2018 House of Assembly candidate as Mushohwe was not supposed to be contested. Makoni the victim was present at the meeting on behalf of his brother who is Nyachityu head."

ZPP said the targeted audience of the meeting were the Zanu PF executive, headmen, kraal heads, churches and Chief Marange who were told to list names of opposition supporters.
