The MDC-T has reported that scores of their members were injured after they were assaulted by armed soldiers at a rally in Zhombe, Midlands North province.

The rally was being held at Empress Business Centre in Zhombe district and was being addressed by the Zhombe MP, Rodgers Tazviona.

The soldiers were deployed in the area allegedly for Robert Mugabe’s maize seed distribution programme, which has attracted much criticism in recent weeks for being partisan. Only ZANU PF members are considered beneficiaries.

In a statement the MDC-T said: “The armed soldiers ran amok and started assaulting the MDC members at the rally. Some of the injured have since been transferred to hospital”.

The party said police from Kwekwe were notified of the incident but have not acted to investigate or make arrests.
