This is the latest in the escalation of violence and intimidation against the main opposition party CCC led by the youthful Nelson Chamisa as Zimbabwe trudges towards the 23 August 2023 elections in a tense political environment.
The CCC candidate Brighton Mazhindu is also being challenged by a CCC rebel who was recently expelled from the party, Freddy Masarirevhu.
