"The youths were in 22 Ford Ranger twin cabs and 10 of these vehicles were taken to Morris Depot. The gang terrorized residents in Budiriro 4."

Moyo further alleged that during the internet blackout the state killed 16 citizens and shot more than a thousand citizens.

"Under the cover of the Internet shutdown, at least 16 people have been killed by soldiers or police; at least 100 have serious gun wounds; at least 200 have serious head injuries or broken limbs & over 1,000 have various other injuries. A humanitarian criss is in all cities."

Moyo said he has been informed that ZANU PF youth terror gangs were unleashed especially in Harare were they wrecked havoc beating and terrorizing people.

"Yesterday, among other untold diabolic acts, #ZanuPF used the cover of the unconstitutional shutdown of the Internet to unleash its youth terror-gangs who wreaked havoc in some Harare suburbs, especially Mbare, Highfield, Kuwadzana, Dzivarasekwa, Glen View & Budiriro."
