Elsewhere in Kwekwe, President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s ruling Zanu PF party rally proceeded without incident.
In an interview with NewZimbabwe, CCC interim vice president Tendai Biti said; “The rally is no longer possible, as you have seen these guys (ZRP) are blood thirsty and they can do anything to shed blood.
“As leadership we must order our supporters to go home, but the yellow fever will not be stopped by teargas or riot police.”
