Last week the
house of an MDC activist was burnt down by known ZANU PF members
(SW Radio Africa News - 29 July 2011) The home of Marjorie Chikwasha,
an MDC activist in Ward 12 Nyanga South, Manicaland province was
burnt on Tuesday night. Chikwasha lost three bags of fertiliser,
two 50 kg bags of maize and kitchen utensils. She made a report
at Nyanga Police Station but no arrests have been made.
This is the
second attack on MDC members in less than a week. On Sunday night,
in Chiredzi West; Tawanda Imbayago's house, the MDC secretary
for Ward 28, was burnt down by known ZANU PF arsonists. A report
was also made at Chiredzi Police station but again no arrests have
been made although the culprits have been identified.
PF activists are unfazed by the commotion they caused during the
public hearing on the Zimbabwe
Human Rights Commission Bill as was shown by Emma Machingura
one of the hooligans' unusual visit to the Newsday crew. Emma
Machingura - who was splashed on the front page of NewsDay last
week as one of the party's supporters who besieged Paliament
building and disrupted the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission Bill
public hearings - stormed NewsDay offices on Friday, denying
she was violent and demanded a share of the papers' sales
after her picture appeared in the paper. While the violence was
a breach and violation of some of the key fundamental rights, ZANU
PF has on the other hand pledged to defend the perpetrators of the
