Gokwe Girl (16) Gone Missing, Parents Fear She Was Abducted By ZANU PF Supporters

A 16-year-old girl from Gokwe went missing on Wednesday and her parents suspect she was abducted by ZANU PF supporters.

Christopher Chiremba told ZimLive that his daughter Charmaine Chiremba, a Form Three learner at Njelele High School, went missing in the early hours of Wednesday. He said:

We need assistance to look for our 16-year-old daughter Charmaine Else Chiremba.

On Wednesday morning, we heard footsteps outside our house.

I went to investigate and saw Charmaine and her sister coming from the toilet and I went back to sleep.

He said they realised Charmaine was missing when her mother went to wake her up to prepare for school. Said Chiremba:

She found blood stains on the veranda of their bedroom and a note written ‘usivhotela ZANU PF mwana tatora’.

The note was written in a Shona dialect spoken in Gokwe, translated to “you should vote for ZANU PF, we have taken the child.

Chiremba said they reported the case to the police and later conducted a search with some community members.

He said the search party found the girl’s blouse thrown on the ground a few metres from the house.

Chiremba suspects his child was targeted because, in 2013, his wife contested for councillor under the MDC-T banner and lost. He added:

Ever since then, we have stayed away from politics. We even voted in the recent ZANU PF primary elections. I am not sure why they would target my family.

ZRP spokesperson in Midlands Province Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko referred ZimLive to national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi who said he was yet to be briefed on the case.
