Armed men wearing balaclavas allegedly stormed the house of MDC Youth Assembly President Happymore Chidziva on Wednesday looking for him and beat up  everyone who was at home upon failure to find him.

In an exclusive interview with Bulawayo24, the firebrand  Chidziva said, "On Wednesday which was the  day before the demonstration state agents visited my residence. I was on my way home and got a call that armed and masked men are at home looking for me and they were beating up people who were there.  

"I drove back and could not go home. When I settled somewhere, I checked the phone messages since I was busy whole day preparing for the event. I then saw two messages that were sent at 17:45. The first message said: Leave what you are doing, I am death and I drink blood. Then the second message said, If you do not stop what you doing I will break your neck and separate your head from your body, I will kill you."

At 10 PM he says he received another message that said: There is nowhere where you will go I will find you.

Chidziva revealed that his investigations have revealed the  identities behind the numbers that sent the messages to him.

"My investigations have picked owners of the numbers that sent me the messages. The first number is 0717154993 which is registered under  Martin Chigeregede of 432 Cranebonne Harare  and the second one 0715949841 belongs to  Fadzai Mazhozho of 3234 mandara Harare. What they must know is that  I am not afraid and am also gunning for them as they said in their texts and will only rest if ndavabata."

Addressing thousands of protesters who filled up Africa Unity Square in Harare yesterday, Chidziva said many demonstrations were coming as the opposition party continues piling pressure on the Zanu PF Government.

"I am happy that we have launched a program for demonstrations. We want Mnangagwa and his team to know that streets will be our second home until problems facing our country are addressed."

 "Don't be afraid. Don't hesitate. When the signal comes rise and occupy the streets. It's our time to define our future, to secure and defend our future," he said.
