MDC Deputy Spokesperson Senator Bekithemba Mpofu has sensationally claimed that the government of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland working with the Zimabwean military attempted to abduct and kill MDC President Nelson Chamisa in Ruwa on Saturday.

Commenting on an alleged attempted abduction of Chamisa footage, Mpofu said, "So the UK Government using the Zimbabwe  military attempted to kill my friend and  the Ml6 was involved! When the Mnangagwa government stops being captured by the Conservative Party in the UK, they will be truly African!"

The wide circulating video shows Chamisa approaching and entering a vehicle passengers seat, then unknown persons drag him out and begin an altercation with persons inside the vehicle.

Explaining the dramatic events, MDC Spokesperson Mafume said "We had an altercation with the CIO. About six cars followed president Nelson Chamisa's convoy from Marondera. They then blocked the convoy in Mabvuku, blocked the presidential car, and tried to retrieve Chamisa.

"Our security managed to block them from taking him, or taking part of his personnel. When they were blocked, they then took one of the security guys in the security team who then jumped out of a moving car as they drove off with him."

Mafume said they had previously taken down number plates of suspicious vehicles tailing the MDC leader, which were reported at Avondale Police Station as well as Harare Central Police Station but nothing has been done so far.

"The (six) cars are the same cars that have been following him around, he said. Today has been their first brazen attempt to actively block the motorcade and also interfere with Chamisa's movements. He is currently safe, the security managed to block them from taking him and Mabvuku residents came out upon seeing the altercation. When the crowd swelled, they then fled but the number plates have been noted and submitted to the police.

A police report had been filed at Mabvuku Police Station, he said.

Tendai Biti, the MDC's deputy national chairman, said on Twitter that the attempted abduction was shocking and unacceptable.

"We have now descended fully into a vicious fascist State. What is wrong with this blood-thirsty President?" he said.
