Sengu threatens MDC supporters

Taurai Sengu, the Zanu (PF) candidate in the forthcoming Ward 11 Chegutu East Council by-election, has been accused of threatening MDC-T members.

Last Friday afternoon he allegedly led three party activists to put his party’s campaign posters on the walls of a house and tuck shop belonging to Abigail Walaza, the mother of MDC-T candidate Didlen Walaza.

“Mangwana tikadzoka tikaona akabviswa tinokurovai namai wenyu (If we come back tomorrow and find the posters removed we will beat you up including your mother,” Sengu reportedly told Abigail’s children who were playing outside.

“Zvavakaita zvinoratidza kusarongeka uyekuti vachirikuita zvekutyisidzirana. Zvakandivhundutsa chaizvo pandakasvika pamba (What they did shows a lack of organization and that they still intimidate people. I was so shocked when I got home),” said Walaza.

“These Zanu (PF) people are bullies. I urge our supporters not to react to this provocation,” said her son.

The party’s spokesperson, Douglas Mwonzora, criticized Sengu’s stunt saying, “That is totally unacceptable and is an act of aggression and provocation. The idea is to get MDC to react so that the police will arrest the MDC activists. It is very clear that the MDC is headed for victory in those elections. We urge our people to exercise restraint and caution.”
