Mutoko teacher living in fear after army attack

A man escaped death by a whisker after being brutally attacked by some members of the uniformed forces last week.

Stanley Bururu (48), a teacher at Masvika Primary School in Mutoko, told The Zimbabwean he was attacked by four men in army uniform.

“On my way home from Mutoko centre, I was approached by four men in army uniform who demanded to know where l was coming from. I told them l was coming from the shopping centre. They dragged me into a nearby bush and beat me up with logs and fists,” he said.

The soldiers accused him of attending an MDC rally addressed by Welshman Ncube, leader of the smaller Movement for Democratic Change. “I now live in fear as these men promised to come back for me and my family. They said l am an activist masquerading as a teacher,” he said.

He reported the matter at Mutoko police station. Kurauone Chihwayi, MDC-N spokesperson, said a number of their supporters were attacked at the rally. “We are still receiving reports that people are still being beaten up by the army, which is disturbing,” he said.
