<vote /> Nine Zimbabwe People First supporters have been hospitalised following suspected attacks by people believed to be Zanu-PF supporters, who accused them of attending former Vice-President Joice Mujuru’s campaign rally held in Harare last Saturday.
People First party spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire described the attacks as barbaric and meant to instil fear into opposition supporters,
“We have a number of our supporters who were attacked, harassed and injured by Zanu PF thugs in Harare South, Glen View and Glen Norah. Seven of these had to receive medical attention and of these, two are still hospitalised.”
Mawarire said one of the victims, Patricia Pfachi (56), sustained a broken arm and a dislocated wrist, while 35-year-old Collen Mbava had his right eye injured in the attacks. Mbava reported his case at Waterfalls Police Station under RRB 2825475. Another victim, Matilda Marichi (34), also sustained severe injuries and reported the matter at the same police station under RRB 2825476.
People First is paying medical bills for its injured members and is working with the police to ensure the suspects were brought to book.
Mujuru will hold rallies in all parts of the country before the party's official launch in October this year
