We will not be forced to vote for Zanu (PF)

Villagers here have vowed that Zanu (PF) candidate Gilbert Nyanhongo will never win the seat - no matter how much violence and intimidation Zanu (PF) thugs use.

They have demanded that perpetrators of violence who killed innocent people be brought to book.

Nyanhongo, a retired Brigadier who is deputy minister of Power and Energy Development, is eyeing Douglas Mwonzora’s Nyanga North constituency.

Villagers said they were being intimidated by overzealous war veterans and militia and blamed the police for being partisan and unprofessional. “We wonder why the police are applying the law selectively. Those who are terrorising us are walking scot free, while innocent villagers are persecuted,” said one villager who declined to be named for fear of reprisal.

“Please Zanu (PF) give us a chance to elect people of our choice. We are sick and tired of your dirty political tactics. We don’t see the reason why people should be beaten up for supporting a candidate of their choice. We don’t want candidates who splash money but those fight to democratise political space,” said Chris Kagoyo.

“We want to petition the Prime Minister as Head of Government to discuss the matter with Zanu (PF) leader President Mugabe because we are fed up with this cheap politicking,” said Muchadura Maromo, an MDC-T activist.
