The Advocate Nelson Chamisa led MDC has issued a statement condemning the  attacks on Chief Ndiweni by members of the President Emmerson Mnangagwa administration.

Party Spokesperson Jacob Mafume said, " The military State and the cult has  displayed that by all accounts the Chief was right. Matemadanda's press conference, Nick Mangwana and Energy Mutodi were all inciting and unacceptable."

Mafume said it is not surprising that the attacks came a day after ZANU PF officials had spoken of Ndiweni.

"Within a day of their reckless utterances the Chief was attacked by a Zanu PF mob in Bulawayo who attempted to take his vehicle. It is clear. Those vehicles given to Chiefs were meant to convert them into a captured community. This too is unacceptable. Not to mention that Zanu PF was all in defence of Chief Charumbira when he was found on the wrong by the courts for partisan behavior."

Mafume said Chief Ndiweni was innocent and the ones who must be held accountable are the ZANU PF functionaries.

"Chief Ndiweni has not in any way supported any political party, but castigated violations of citizen rights. If he is on the wrong, there is always due process. Barbaric attacks on the Chief are unacceptable.

ZANU PF functionaries in government who made reckless statements must be held to account and those who attacked the Chief, intending to impound his car in Bulawayo must be investigated and brought to Justice."
