By Staff Reporter

Mines and Mining Development Minister and Sanyati MP, Polite Kambamura has been accused of hiring a militia to violently disrupt a ZANU PF meeting on Thursday.

The violence erupted at a ZANU PF cell inter-district meeting at Nyimo business centre in Sanyati constituency.

The hired youth militia was reportedly under instruction to beat up ZANU PF district chairpersons from ARDA, Rusvingo and Nyaunde, perceived as blocking Kambamura’s re-election bid.

ZANU PF ARDA district chairperson Sylvester Mhirizhonga, who was one of the victims confirmed the incident saying they had reported the case to the police.

ZANU PF Rusvingo district chair Joseph Takasungwa claimed that Kambamura came with a truckload of thugs to cause violence.

“The Member of Parliament came with a hired crowd that beat up people, including me,” Takasungwa said

Nyaunde district chair Kudakwashe Gwatinyanya said he lost a tooth during the melee and needed medical attention.

ZANU PF Mashonaland West provincial member Tawanda Tachiona also claimed that Kambamura had sent people to assault party leaders in Sanyati.

“We witnessed district party leaders being beaten up. We are taking those injured to Sanyati Hospital,” said Tachiona

Kambamura, however, distanced himself from the skirmishes, saying “Yes, I am in Sanyati, but never witnessed that”.
