ZANU PF MP furious at being snubbed by villagers in Mudzi

ZANU PF MP Newton Kachepa secretly filmed threatening and  inciting violence

The notoriously violent ZANU PF MP for Mudzi North, Newton Kachepa, on Saturday threatened villagers in his constituency to be aware of what could happen to them if they continued to snub his functions.

The MP was left fuming when a musical gala he had organized at Nyamapanda business centre flopped as villagers decided to stay away.

There are reports the event was poorly attended after Kachepa and his cronies hijacked the venue, which had earlier been booked for the memorial service for the late Cephas Magura.

The 67 year-old Magura, who was the MDC-T ward one chairman in Mudzi North in Mashonaland East province, was killed in May, allegedly by a group of ZANU PF activists who attacked MDC-T supporters returning from a district rally at Chimukoko Business Centre.

Our correspondent Lionel Saungweme told us his sources in the district said Kachepa threatened people at Nyamapanda with the return of the 2008 torture bases if they aligned themselves with the MDC-T.

‘He also accused villagers of snubbing his gala on Saturday which was poorly attended. There was also a case of the Mudzi North ZANU PF chairman Smart Chizhowa, who beat up Diana Mukarati for refusing to give them tap water for free to use at their gala. This water is paid for but ZANU PF activists wanted it from her for free,’ Saungweme said.

Saungweme said villagers in Mudzi take Kachepa’s threats seriously because in 2008 it is alleged he played a leading role in the murder of MDC-T activists Themba Muronde, Tom Butau, Kingston Muteta and Benazia Nyapunde.

‘He is also accused of involvement in the assault leading to injury and broken limbs of many MDC-T activists. He was also at the forefront when Magura was murdered,’ Saungweme added.

He said the whole plan by Kachepa to hold the gala on Saturday was in order to thwart an earlier proposal to hold a memorial for Magura.

    Newton Kachepa is a filthy piece of c r a p. Kachepa loves to carry out violence against the people and is hated by peace loving Zimbabweans. Soon Newton will have to face charges for crimes against humanity. The arrogance of these Zanu criminal thugs will come cost them life sentences once the ICC has dealt with them.
