Zanu PF Midlands provincial youth chairperson, Prosper Machando allegedly attacked aspiring Ward 13 councillor Tremendous Musara, accusing him of campaigning for Chrispen Tomu.

Tomu, who is known in business circles by his trade name Nice Time, and Machando are both angling to take over the Chirumhanzu Zibagwe parliamentary seat from first lady Auxillia Mnangagwa who recently announced she was no longer available to serve as MP.

Machando hired thugs to attack Musara, accusing him of supporting an opponent.

When contacted for comment, Zanu PF provincial spokesperson, Cornelius Mupereri confirmed the incident but could not shed more light.

In a social media outburst, Musara who reportedly sustained injuries on the wrist during the attack, demanded an apology from his assailants.

“To all those who attacked me, I want you to apologise before I make this matter a police case. If you don’t comply I will not need a witness, Nice Time shop security cameras have all the evidence I need so please, do as I say and I give you 24 hours,” reads Musara’s message. tell zim
