MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa narrowly escapes kidnapping attempt in Ruwa, more details emerge


MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa’s convoy has been involved in a high speed chase with vehicles suspected to be linked to state security agents, a senior MDC Alliance official has said.

“We were chased by eight vehicles that were driving very aggressively trying to ram us. Their faces were covered and we ended up coming off the highway into Ruwa. There was a major scuffle as they tried to seize Chamisa but his security managed to get him into another vehicle,” the official, who requested anonymity as they are not authorised to speak to the Press, said.

“Even after Ruwa they kept chasing us and we went into Mabvuku. They were then overpowered as a crowd gathered at Chizhanje near Mabvuku police station. We have filed a police report at Mabvuku police. The report number is RRB3722372.”
