Zimbabwe: MDC Youth Member Assaulted in Mbare

press release

An MDC youth member, Decent Rutsito (22) was yesterday assaulted by a gang of Zanu PF youths led by one Chiraundi in Mbare. The Zanu PF hooligans ganged up against Rutsito, who was going for a VID test around 11am and took him to a room at Njere flats in the suburb where they heavily assaulted him with fan belts for supporting MDC.

A former branch chairperson for Majubheki, Rutsito is a well known MDC activist in the area. He reported the matter to Mbare Police Station before he passed out. He was only assisted after the intervention of fellow MDC members who got a tip-off from Mbare residents.

Rutsito has since been hospitalised.

The people's struggle for real change, let's finish it!!!
