The aides of MDC Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa, were attacked by “drunken youths” allegedly sent by ZANU PF official Ezra Chadzamira in Masvingo.
The attack took place in the Charumbira area in Masvingo this Monday. The assailants who were waving placards denouncing “sanctions” blocked a road and attacked the aides. Posting on Twitter, MDC Alliance said:
VIDEO footage of the violent, ZANU PF-sponsored attacks on President @nelsonchamisa’s delegation in Charumbira area. Cars were seen ferrying the rented crowd and co-ordinating the attacks as violent thugs held up printed posters.
A crowd of drunken youths at the scene are saying they were sent by Ezra Chadzamira (Masvingo Provincial Affairs Minister) whom they say was sent by Mnangagwa. President @nelsonchamisa has been taken to a safe haven. We condemn this violence in the strongest of terms.

Respected Journalist Hopewell Chin’ono also confirmed the news on his Facebook page, he said:
These pictures show one of the cars in Nelson Chamisa’s convoy.
When a political party has run out of ideas to transform the country as ZANUPF has, they resort to violence!
This shows that other than looting, plunder, abuse of state institutions, and violence, ZANUPF has nothing to offer!
This is a sign of things to come against the opposition especially during election time.
That is why it is important for all main political actors in Zimbabwe to join hands and speak to the world with one voice!
As for the people being used to do this violence, I have never seen such stupidity where someone fights for the rich so that she remains poor!
It can’t get any idiotic than than seriously!
