Thokozani Khupe has made claims that she was attacked by Nelson Chamisa aides outside the Supreme Court yesterday.
Her party spokesperson, Linda Masarira made the claims on Wednesday morning.
Speaking in Belvedere, Harare, Masarira said Khupe was subjected to violence yesterday and the party is concerned that the police watched as the abuse continued.
She said, “the routine nature of such behaviour betrays a sense of impunity by those Chamisa supporters, we have only seen in zanu PF, they have always gotten away with violence they will always get away with violence, and it is time to put a stop to any political violence as we go into 2018 elections. The MDC T has historically been subjected to violence and it is now clear that the MDC led by Dr Thokozani Khupe continues to be subjected to violence. It is also important to note that yesterday the latest of attacks happened in full view of law enforcement agents, and the perpetrators have not been arrested, ” she said.
She was asked if their party had made a police report and replied saying that they have not.
Masarira however also later on appeared to change her statement claiming that the physical abuse she alluded to earlier was only verbal insults.
When asked if her party had experienced any form of violence from the ruling party, ZANU PF, Masarira said there had been none at all this whole year.
“We have not seen any violence whatsoever from Zanu PF this whole year…however the violence that has come against us has come from the MDC led by Nelson Chamisa,” she added.
