Heal Zimbabwe Trust reported that in Mudzi North ward 1, Zanu-PF youth led by Gift Tembo, John Karonga and Tatenda Karonga intimidated and forced community members to attend a rally recently at Nyamapanda Growth Point.

The rally was addressed by Mudzi North Member of Parliament, Newton Kachepa. 

"The three ordered vendors in the growth point to close their kiosks and attend the rally. They threatened those who tried to resist with violence. The victims had no option but to oblige," said the trust.

The trust said in Mt Darwin ward 31 Zanu PF District Chairperson Emerson Climate, Village head Chimbuwe and Headman Kaitano intimidated community members during a ZANU PF restructuring meeting recently in Mumba Village.

"The three took turns to threaten community members with violence if they campaign for opposition political parties in the area," said the trust.
