Alleged Attack In Victoria Falls
Mavhunga was reportedly assaulted by suspected ZANU PF supporters over the Ngaapinde Hake Mukomana slogan. MDC Alliance’s co-vice chairperson, Job Sikhala, on Sunday 24 October 2021 announced the assault on Mavhunga saying the incident happened in Victoria Falls. Sikhala said:
"Breaking News: Our MP for Chitungwiza South Maxwell Mavhunga has been badly beaten in Victoria Falls by suspected ZANU PF supporters after he shouted Ngaapinde Hake Mukomana. He says he was taken from the shores of Zambezi River & dragged into a room where he was badly attacked."
Mavhunga was sought by the police over a WhatsApp message he allegedly posted in a group during a February 2019 stayaway which turned violent. He reported to the police and was released into the custody of his lawyer Job Sikhala.
