The opposition party, MDC youth leader, Obey Sithole has slammed ZANU PF members claiming they are terrorizing citizens while donning MDC regalia.
This comes after suspected ZANU PF youths disrupted former cabinet minister, Jonathan Moyo book launch yesterday at SAPES Trust in Milton Park, Harare.
Moyo’s Excelgate book is a detailed account of how the ruling party rigged the 2018 elections.
The group led by a known ZANU PF activist, Taurai Kandishaya was armed with sjamboks and threatened to beat up everyone in attendance including a few diplomats.
In a statement, Sithole claimed a machete-wielding group, Mashurugwi terrorizing people in mining areas clad in MDC regalia was doing so under State Security minister, Owen Ncube’s orders.
“ZANU-PF terrorist gang must stop using MDC regalia in their acts of terrorism
We are deeply concerned by the sad developments that took place this evening at the SAPES Trust at the launch of Excel-gate, a book written by Prof Jonathan Moyo, which exposes how ZANU-PF rigged its way to power in 2018 with the help of the dirty hands of a compromised Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.
I am reliably informed that some hired youths who were clad in MDC regalia disrupted the event in a desperate attempt to mislead the nation and world at large that the violent and disorderly conduct was a product of the MDC Youth Assembly.
Those involved in this regretful act are not part of the MDC, we in the MDC, we are a peace-loving family and we deeply value the existence of freedoms, but will not tolerate the abuse of our paraphernalia.
Our intelligence has revealed that ZANU-PF members of the notorious Kwekwe based Mashurugwi group of terror, hired by one Owen Ncube was impersonating the MDC. This is a dangerous game, they must stop.
Mnangagwa’s blue-eyed boys must stop taking advantage of the man-made poverty in our midst to use their ill-gotten wealth to send youths for unruly errands, these youths require sustainable jobs not anything short of that.
I warn the youths who were part of this shameful act and their handlers that it is a punishable offence to use our regalia and we will not hesitate to take appropriate measures.”
