Zimbabwe: Mnangagwa MP Reportedly Chased Out Of Constituency, Pelted With Stones

Epworth legislator Zalerah Makari (Zanu PF) was on Tuesday purportedly pelted with stones and compelled to desert a Local Government service meeting she was tending to in the body electorate.

Makari confirmed the incident yesterday and accused her Zanu PF rivals of hiring a mob to assault and intimidate her so that she does not contest in the party’s primary elections set to take place soon ahead of general elections later this year.


“If people have support, why resort to violence now? Why not just wait for primary elections and then we compete in a dignified and respectful manner without fighting each other. I thank God that I survived the attack,” she said.

Makari claimed that the meeting had been organised for Local Government minister July Moyo so that he would address residents’ concerns. “I have made a police report. They threw stones at me, chased after me and I thank the police for coming to my rescue.”

She accused some party youth league leaders of allegedly inciting party activists to attack her. It is understood Kudakwashe Damson is reportedly eyeing the Epworth seat.

He could not be reached for comment yesterday.
