Eyewitnesses say armed police officers rounded up the youths aged between 15 and 31 years and took them to an unknown area. All police stations said the youths were not in their custody. Meanwhile, Vice President, Hon. Thokozani Khupes driver, Witness Dube, who was arrested last week on charges of refusing to sign the Zanu PF sanctions petition is still in police custody. He was today transferred to Bulawayo Central Police Station but no charges have been brought against him as the police officers are saying they are still consulting on a charge to lay against him.
Zanu PF youths led by Tendai Gurenje last night axed to death eight cattle belonging to MDC Chimanimani West district treasurer, John Neshiri. A police report was made at Chimanimani Police Station but no arrests have been made. In the same district, Israel Mureyani an MDC activist from Nedziwa Village was on Thursday admitted at Mutambara Mission Hospital after he was attacked by Zanu PF youths the same day.
Gabriel Masize, an MDC and International Society of Poets member was abducted by plain clothes police officers on Saturday at Janganu Junction in Kadoma. He was taken to Kadoma Central Police Station and charged with undermining the authority of the President.
While in custody, he was severely assaulted under the feet and private parts. Masize was released after 18 hours but medical staff and Kadoma General Hospital refused to treat him saying he should first get a report from the police detailing how he sustained the injuries. Say No to violence!! Yes to Peace!!
