Mourners attacked at funeral for singing MDC-T songs5 years ago
Mourners who were gathered at the funeral of MDC-T member only identified as Chibanda, at Shawasha flats in Mbare were reportedly attacked on Saturday night by alleged Zanu-PF Youths. The Zimbabwe Republic Police had to be called to restore order.
Gokomere, the MDC-T provincial chairman said:
Yes, it is true. I can confirm that we were attacked by youths as we mourned one of our members who died on Friday. They threw stones at us injuring young Chibanda and another member who had a swollen face.
When the injured went to report the matter at Matapi police station, we were surprised to hear that the two female police officers were being instructed on what to do by the aggressors who admitted that they had beaten the mourners because they were singing MDC-T songs.
