Opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa’s convoy has been violently attacked by suspected Zanu PF thugs in the Charumbira area of Masvingo province.
Several members of his team have been injured and cars damaged with stones.
Chamisa was on the way to community meetings that are part of his citizen interface tour.
The attackers were chanting anti sanctions slogans barring Chamisa from addressing the people.
“A crowd of drunken youths at the scene are saying they were sent by Ezra Chadzamira (Masvingo Provincial Affairs Minister) whom they say was sent by Mnangagwa”.
Meanwhile, Chamisa has been taken to a safe haven.
