A Zanu-PF supporter in Rusape was seriously injured after he was allegedly struck with an iron bar on the head by MDC-T aspiring House of Assembly Member for Makoni West Mr Webber Chinyadza and four of his supporters in the town yesterday. In a statement, national police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba confirmed receiving the report and identified the victim as Mr Abel Ruponga.

It is understood Mr Ruponga, who was clad in Zanu-PF campaign regalia, had just attended a party rally at Mukuvisi Business Centre. On approaching Ngove Business Centre, the suspects tripped and struck him with an iron bar.

He sustained a deep cut in the head.

“As the Zimbabwe Republic Police, we will not hesitate to arrest all perpetrators of violence regardless of their political affiliation or status,” said Senior Asst Comm Charamba.

“We urge political leaders to be exemplary and urge their supporters to desist from any form of violence.”
