Retired Lieutenant Colonel, Elliot Piki (58) who was expected to appear before the Commission of Inquiry to testify on the August 1 shootings in Harare was abducted at gunpoint from his home in Retreat farm, waterfalls around 4pm on Sunday.
Piki was abducted by masked men in black outfits driving an unmarked silver/grey Toyota double cab vehicle.
Piki, who submitted a damning document that exposes the Zanu PF government on the August 1 shootings, had been asked to testify before the commission today.
The MDC condemns the continued use of force, violence and abductions by the State. It has become a crime to oppose the government in Zimbabwe. This illegitimate government will not stop at nothing – a clear failure to break from its dark past.
This modus operandi reminds of of the chilling abduction and disappearance of Itai Dzamara over 4 years ago. Up to this day, we have not seen or heard from him.
Behold the New. Change that Delivers!
