In Mashonaland Easts Uzumba, Tafirei Tofiromutsa, Fabion Chipiso and Ebba Katiyo were badly assaulted by Zanu (PF) militia. Apply Katiyo, Albert Mabu and Sarah Mabulate were attacked last week.

MDC Director of security, Kisimusi Dhlamini, who unveiled the report, said he was worried by the lack of protection by the law.

We wonder who is benefiting from these actions. We are surprised to receive reports of violence on our members especially perpetrated by soldiers and security agents. It is our prayer that the government, through the organ of National Healing, Reconciliation and Integration, should seriously start its long overdue responsibility, said Dhlamini.
