press release

More than 500 Kambuzuma residents today took brooms and dustbins to the high density suburb's streets in a bid to clean their community.

The cleanup programme took place in the whole of Kambuzuma, Harare, from Section 1 to Section 6 under the theme: "Kambuzuma is ours. A clean environment creates a healthy community". The event was done in collaboration with the local Member of Parliament, Hon Willias Madzimure, the Kambuzuma Pastors Fraternal, local councilors and the Combined Harare Residents' Trust.

In Matabelaland North, Moses Moyo, the MDC provincial Secretary for Home affairs, yesterday escaped death by a whisker following an attack by gun totting Zanu PF thugs at his home last night. The gunman threatened Moyo with death for being an MDC member.

Moyo managed to call the police from Saucetown after he blocked the Zanu PF members' car from escaping. Police arrested the two Zanu PF members - Takesure Mbano, the Zanu PF Secretary for Security and Tinashe Chikara. A docket was opened at Saucetown police station -RRB -1396184.

In Masvingo, a Jomic interparty dialogue Youth forum was held at Chevron hotel where youth from various Parties met in a bid to promote tolerance among youth of different political views.

In Manicaland, there are reports of partisan distribution of the grain loan scheme in ward 8 of Buhera North. The MDC has castigated the partisan distribution saying the selective distribution of the presidential input scheme in Gokwe and other parts of the country vindicates the party's repeated assertions that the so called presidential input scheme is nothing but the usual Zanu PF vote buying scheme.
