According to Garura, he saw fire coming out of the two houses at around 4 am and went out to investigate.He managed to identify the arsonists as Temba Nyamubobo, a Zanu PF youth and his two relatives Rudolf and Aaron Garura. Titus Garura managed to report the attack at Mugabe police post but no arrests have been made.

The trial of three MDC youth activists who are facing trumped-up charges of threatening to kill a Zanu PF supporter ended today at the Bindura magistrates court in Mashonaland Central province. Last Siraha, Stephan Jambo and Malvern Gumbo were arrested in February on charges of threatening a Zanu PF supporter, Chenai Makarahwa at an MDC rally in Chipadze Township. Makarahwa was not at the rally but made a report that he had been threatened with death.The magistrate is expected to pass judgment on Friday.

In Ward 6, Zhombe, Midlands North province, one army Major Mpofu has threatened to court martial an ex-soldier Tungamirai Hove, if he continues to mobilise MDC supporters ahead of the Constitution-making meetings in the area. School lessons are being disrupted at St Francis secondary school in Guruve South, Mashonaland Central province as former students from the disbanded National Youth Service have camped at the school and are performing drills and singing during the lessons.

The youths camped at the school last month on the pretext that they wanted to perform community service at the school and the surrounding community. However, no work has been done as the youths who requested resources from the school, spent the whole day doing drills, singing and threatening to cause disturbances if the discredited Zanu PF Kariba draft is rejected by the people in the Constitution-making process.
