ZANU PF-ALIGNED pressure groups and youths are reportedly on a drive to picket at the homes of top MDC leaders, whom they accuse of inviting Western sanctions, which they allege are behind the untold suffering faced by multitudes in the country.
Through posters and flyers being distributed on social media by known Zanu PF youths, Nelson Chamisa’s rural home, Job Sikhala’s Chitungwiza home and Tendai Biti’s Glen Lorne home are the targets.
“Enough of ‘more sanctions’ we are coming to eat what you eat. We are sick and tired of individuals calling for sanctions that are hurting innocent citizens while they and their families live comfortably,” read one of the flyers calling on youths to invade Biti’s home on Friday.
Taurai Kundishaya, leader of Zanu PF-aligned Zimbabwe Citizens Forum and member of Harare Zanu PF youth league told NewsDay that he was part of the team mobilising against the MDC leadership in a bid to force them to call for an end to sanctions.
“Tendai Biti said he would make sure the Zimbabwe government would not get a penny from the international community. Had it been that government got such pennies we could all be benefiting.”
Sikhala, the MDC vice-chairperson, said he had since evacuated his family from home and was now mobilising party youths for his own security and that of his property.
