    A Constitutional Parliamentary Select Committee (COPAC) rapporteur on Monday 6 September, 2010 assaulted a COPAC team leader and Bindura South Member of Parliament Hon. Bednock Nyaude outside the offices of the District Administrator for Kadoma in Mashonaland West Province.

    Hon. Nyaude and Hon. Editor Matamisa, the legislator for Kadoma Central, who is one of the COPAC supervisors in Mashonaland West Province, confirmed the assault.

    Hon. Nyaude told ZZZICOMP that he was punched on his chest by Beauty Zhuwao, a rapporteur for COPAC, who accused him of insinuating that she had personal problems, a charge which Hon. Nyaude denied.

    Hon. Nyaude reported the assault case at Kadoma Central Police Station on Tuesday 7 September, 2010 around 06:00 am and to the two COPAC team supervisors Hon. Matamisa and Hon. Walter Chidhakwa, the MP for Zvimba South.

    On Wednesday 8 September, 2010 Hon. Matamisa travelled to Harare, where she delivered the report done by Hon Nyaude detailing his assault to COPAC co-chairperson Hon. Paul Mangwana at his Milton Park offices. Zhuwao is part of the team of rapporteurs who are capturing the public sentiments expressed during the constitution making outreach process.
