A drunk ZANU PF supporter reportedly went berserk and whipped a six year old boy for chanting Chamisa's slogan.

Norman Mafa (37) appeared before Guruve resident magistrate Shingirai Mutiro yesterday facing assault charges and pleaded not guilty.

Public prosecutor Mr Albert Mazhindu told the court that on 6 August Mafa allegedly met a group of young boys at Gem farm in Mvurwi while he was putting on his party regalia under the influence of alcohol.

The young boys around the ages of six and seven started chanting Chamisa's slogans, enragaing Mafa who picked a stick and chased after the boys.

He is reported to have caught one boy and whipped him severely only to release him after noticing blood gushing out of his legs.
The boy was rushed to Mvurwi hospital where he is believed to have been stitched twice on both legs.

Mafa was reminded in custody to next Friday for continuation of trial.

Gemu farm has recorded two cases of political violence from ZANU PF supporters so far with the previous case for Godfrey Musebo (40) of plot 40 Gem farm who was slapped with community service for assaulting an MDC supporter.
