CIO agents attack mechanic

Three members of the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) this afternoon severely assaulted a mechanic, Bornface Mvemve as he was test-driving an MDC vehicle in Harare.

The mechanic, Mvemve (32) said the incident took place just after the round-about in Msasa as he was driving towards the city centre. Narrating the incident, Bornface said as he was driving, a grey Nissan Hardbody double cab with no number plates overtook him and suddenly blocked his way.

Three men in black suits, including the driver, disembarked. Two of the men who were drinking beer began to assault the mechanic and poured beer all over him. After that they smashed both the front and the rear windscreens of the party vehicle. They then hurriedly left the scene.

Bornface, injured on his neck and collar bone and was immediately rushed to a city hospital where he is receiving treatment.

"The CIO and other security agents are refusing to reform and have constantly attacked MDC members at the instigation of ZANU (PF). Last week, the police arrested MDC shop assistants manning the party regalia shop at Harvest House following clashes with vendors.

"MDC is also concerned with the continued renewal of service chiefs’ contracts as they have been partisan towards ZANU (PF) in the discharge of their duties. Two of the culprits, Defence Forces Commander Constantine Chiwenga and Police Chief Augustine Chihuri’s contracts are expiring next month," according to a statement from the party.
