Ex-ZANU PF MP Fears For Her Life
A former ZANU PF MP and a veteran of the liberation struggle, Irene Zindi has claimed that her life is in danger after her farm supervisor was reportedly kidnapped and interrogated during the night for hours by unknown assailants.
Zindi is a former MP for Mutasa South in Manicaland Province. During last year’s ZANU PF primary elections, she lost to Misheck Mugadza, who was in turn defeated by MDC’s Regai Tsunga during the harmonised elections held in July.
Writing on microblogging site, Twitter, Zindi claimed that she had decided to speak out so that if anything happens to her, the public would know. She said:
Those elements have struck again, visiting my farm the night of July 17, 2019. Kidnapped my farm supervisor at 9 pm and released him 0300hrs.
Seized his farm, fone, communication radio, bullets. All they did was interrogating him about me, who I live with and my activities on the farm.
… Why are they doing this to me? I don’t know and what could be the motive. I don’t think I am a threat to anyone and I am just concentrating on my business.
My life is threatened and if anything happens to me I want the public to know.
