The CCDZ also urged prominent lawyers in Harare and Bulawayo who had handled MDC cases, and journalists who had reported on the MDC, to exercise extreme caution in the face of the many numbers of assassinations and abductions.
Mfundo Mlilo from the Combined Harare Residents Association, which is working with the CCDZ, said four of their members had been abducted from the Kuwadzana high-density area of Harare. Two were still missing. Murdered MDC activist Tonderai Ndira was also a CHRA member for the Mabvuku district. – SW Radio Africa
