There are reports that Zanu-PF supporters stormed an MDC-T rally in Chitungwiza on Sunday leading to the cancellation of the event.

The ZRP anti-riot squads were deployed to calm the tensions and after numerous running battles to disperse the youths, the town was at peace again.

The MDC-T leadership then called for a media briefing but this news crew was denied access into the building by the party's youths and it had to take minutes of persuasion by the party's Chairman, Lovemore Moyo for the crew to be admitted.

Addressing journalists, MDC-T Secretary General, Mr Tendai Biti accused Zanu PF youths for the violence.

However Zanu PF DCC1 Chairman, Cde Wilfred Gwekwete said MDC-T went on a beating spree on Friday night while mobilising people to attend their rally and on Saturday, people went to the rally's venue to make a formal complaint only to be answered by fists and stones.




Observers have questioned why people are not taking heed of President Robert Mugabe's calls for peace and tolerance, adding that elections have only been said to be sometime next year yet already the country is witnessing violent scenes.

Last weekend, violence was witnessed in Hatcliffe while on Tuesday, MDC-T youths clashed with police in Harare's Central Business District.
