Biti spoke after state agents last week raided a Harare house belonging to the claiming they were searching for weapons.

“Armed police numbering over 50 raided this residence on the pretext that they were looking for arms stolen from the police or the army. They ransacked every room and took a bunch of valuable party material from a room occupied by our organising secretary Morgan Komichi,” Biti told journalists.

“We regard it as serious evidence of a few in Zanu (PF) and securocrats who want us out of the government. On our part, this is nothing new. They will continue to plant arms and attempt to kill us but we will look the dictatorship in the eye, he said.

Biti said the raid was the work of members of President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu (PF) party and security forces opposed to the country’s power-sharing government.

There were fears the police may have “planted” weapons during the raid, Biti said.

The raid came days after the MDC said it was suspending contact with Mugabe’s party in the power-sharing government to protest over delays in resolving outstanding issues stalling the work of the government.
