UMP a no-go area for MDC-T supporters

MDC-T supporters have been forced to flee their homes after several cases of arson by suspected activists in Uzumba, Maramba, Pfungwe, a JOMIC report has shown.

The report, compiled by the MDC-T Provincial Administrator, Givemore Chinopfumbuka, said Bams and Florence Kavhai now lived in fear following the burning of their home on April 05. The arson was committed after Florence had attended a workshop organised by her party.

In other incidents, Paul Kazingizi fled his home after Zanu (PF) youths led by war veterans had attempted to kill him and torch his home while Goodwell Mazarura, his wife and three children had not been able to return to their house since they were intimidated and fled the area nine months ago.

Despite reporting these cases to Mutawatawa and Nyamapanga police, no action was taken. People were afraid of speaking out because they feared death.

The report, which fingered Farisi Kandemiri, who is said to be eying a parliamentary seat in the area, urged JOMIC to take urgent action before people lose their lives.

“There is no peace for MDC members in UMP. Some Zanu (PF) elements have declared the area a one party state. These elements are having a field day as the police take no action even after the victims have reported them,” stated the report.

Chinopfumbuka said the violence defied calls for peace from the legislator of the area Simba Mudarikwa. The JOMIC liaison officer for Mashonaland East, Lovemore Kadenge, confirmed receiving the report.
