ZRP Speaks On “Murewa Political Violence” Recorded On Video
The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has said it is investigating “political violence” which allegedly happened in Murewa, Mashonaland East Province on an unknown date.
Reads the police statement:
The ZRP has taken note of a video which has gone viral on social media on alleged political violence in Murewa North. Investigations are now in progress. More details will be released in due course.
In a video gleaned by Pindula News, senior citizens are being beaten by assailants who accuse them of being members of the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) led by Nelson Chamisa.
Violence has been on the rise in Zimbabwe since March when the nation was preparing for by-elections that were held on the 26th of March.
The CCC reported several cases of violence which they said was meted out by members of the ruling ZANU PF.
Some people were killed while scores were injured and or lost their properties due to politically-motivated violence.
The ruling ZANU PF denies the allegations.
While some ZANU PF officials are preaching peace, tolerance and unity, some are on record threatening violence “worse than witnessed in 2008” ahead of harmonised elections scheduled for this year.
Political analysts have predicted bloody elections saying ZANU PF will use any means possible to retain power.
