ZimEye.com sources reveal that Charumbira was attacked by a group of
people in the outskirts of the Bulawayo CBD while harassing vendors.
Charumbira has been reportedly going around the city ordering vendors to
join ZANU PF threatening them that they lose their vending stands which he
claimed belonged to ZANU PF.
Charumbira irked residents of Bulawayo when he assaulted Bulawayo’s Ward 9
Councillor Charles Moyo with fists at the vending bays outside Makokoba’s
Madlodlo Beerhall on Monday in full view of the vendors and two other
MDC-T councillors when the councillors confronted him over his harassment
Charumbira openly boasted that no one can do anything to him as he is
protected by Mnangagwa and the soldiers while he assaulted the councillor.
When he tried to continue with his antics on Thursday at the same vending
area, a crowd suspected to be members of the Mthwakazi Republic Party
appeared from nowhere and thoroughly beat him up uttering tribal
statements telling him to go and tell Mnangagwa that he is equally
unwanted in Bulawayo as was his predecessor Robert Mugabe.
On Tuesday the information office of Mthwakazi Republic Party issued a
strong media statement warning Charumbira to stop harassing the people of
Bulawayo and get out of the city as a matter of urgency.
Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports indicate that Charumbira escaped death by a
whisker on Sunday when a ZANU PF vehicle he was travelling in from
Masvingo to Bulawayo was bumped from behind by another vehicle before over
Charumbira is famous for booing former First Lady Grace Mugabe when she
addressed a rally in Bulawayo last month. He was also at one time
thoroughly beaten and stabbed with a knife by rival G40 faction members
when the ZANU PF factions clashed at a party meeting in August.
