The youths, who were visibly drunk, pelted Hebert Chiripanyanga’s Isuzu KB double cab with stones near Matondo business centre injuring him as he drove to an MDC youth meeting at the centre.
The injured Chiripanyanga was taken to Zimunya clinic, but was denied assistance because the nurses were afraid of a backlash from the youths.
The attack was allegedly engineered by a youth only identified as Tauzen.
The matter was reported at Matondo Police base, but nothing happened as it was manned by a member of the police constabulary who said he would wait for his boss to solve the matter.
“My hands are too small to deal with that matter. You should wait for my boss who is attending a scene somewhere,” he said, without naming the boss.
“Primitive and barbaric politics of the knobkerrie are pursued by those parties who have nothing to offer to the people,” said an MDC-T supporter accompanying Chiripanyanga. He later received treatment at a private hospital in Mutare.Post published in: News
