Chaotic  scenes were seen during a ZANU PF rally in Bindura where president Emmerson Mnangagwa was addressing supporters. Hundreds of people were filmed fleeing from the location as soldiers, Border Gezi militia youth and police unsuccessfully used sticks and dogs to force them back into the venue.

Problems started when thousands of people who were forced to attend attempted to leave the venue while the president was still speaking.

Sources say people attempted  to leave but the military and the police using dogs and baton sticks blocked them resulting in running battles.

I was reported that many people were not even following the proceedings as they were compelled to attend the meeting.Two people were taken by ambulance after they got injured in the melee.

Several people were beaten up as they ran away from the rally.

Earlier in the week on Friday, the Zanu PF leadership was left seething with anger after restless supporters walked out on Mnangagwa at a rally in Mapfungautsi Primary School in Gokwe South.
