Nhau manhandled Mukunyayidze while other thugs lambasted the MDC and publishers of the reading material,” said an eye witness.
Mukunyayidze went on to make a police report, but despite the culprits having been identified, no arrests were made. Villages 14, 17 and 18 were sealed off from MDC by Zanu (PF). Independent publications were prohibited in the area.
Perpetrators of June 2008 violence such as Isaiah Gonye, Murewa Ruzvidzo and Tendai Nhau, among others, continue to victimize suspected anti-Mugabe villagers. Mukunyayidze and several other villagers lost households and property to Zanu (PF)-sponsored violence in 2008.
