MASVINGO – Two alleged G40 youths were last weekend attacked upon arrival at a Zanu PF ward meeting at Rujeko Primary School by alleged Team Lacoste sympathisers who accused them of spying.
The two, Simbarashe Tavahla and Tinashe Manyika were quickly ferried to Masvingo General Hospital for medical attention.
Tavahla confirmed the incident and said the issue is now being handled by the police. He told TellZim News they were attacked for being frequently seen in the company of Masvingo Urban legislator Daniel Shumba.
"When we arrived for a party meeting in ward seven, Promise Mutangadura approached me for what I expected to be a greeting but I was shocked when he attacked me. Ward youth chairperson Charles Mabhiyati also joined him to attack me and Manyika.
"They accused us of being Shumba's acolytes sent to spy on them. Our relationship with Shumba is only based on our dependence on him to help us establish our own businesses," Tavahla said.
Shumba is alleged to be in the G40 faction which is said to be rabidly opposed to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa succeeding President Robert Mugabe.politics
