A group of Zanu PF youth allegedly hijacked food distribution meant for the elderly, orphans and vulnerable members of the community in Epworth

"On 19 December 2015 at the Epworth Local Board, a group of Zanu-PF youth allegedly hijacked the process of food distribution meant for the elderly, orphans and other vulnerable members of the community and took the rice for themselves leaving the intended beneficiaries without food," Zimbabwe Peace Project Reported on its December issue.

"On 24 December 2015, residents of Kuwadzana were gathered where groceries donated by MP Nelson Chamisa were being distributed to members of the community."

ZPP said the goodies were a hamper that included salt, sugar, and cooking oil among other things. During the distribution a member from another MDC faction who is allegedly aspiring to contest the MP seat in 2018 election, disrupted the proceedings and the distribution of the goodies had to be stopped for a while.

"Things only came back to normal after the intervention by the MDC-T Harare province. Chamisa confirmed the incident to ZPP," ZPP reported.
