An MDC supporter from Matapi flats who preferred anonymity said all MDC supporters in the area are living in fear as they were being forced to attend Zanu PFs all night vigils for the past three days. Those who do not attend are being threatened with expulsion from the flats as the youths claim that the flats belong to Zanu PF when they are council property.
Meanwhile, Magreth Majoni an MDC member from Hwedza in Mashonaland West province on Monday lost party regalia, grocery worth US$25, clothes and US$12 to Zanu PF thugs at Mbare musika. She was coming from the MDC Third National Congress that was held in Bulawayo at the weekend. Majoni who was on her way from MDC congress was assaulted by thugs at Mbare musika in front of a helpless crowd before trying in vain to seek for police protection.
She said the thugs comprising of three women and more than seven men led by the one they called Shefu confronted her at the bus terminus and asked her why she was wearing MDC regalia. They then took all her possessions before running away.She reported the matter to the police but no action was taken.

Reports say that people are being frog matched to bases were they are forced to confess their sins of supporting MDC in the area.
