Police claim staunch CCC supporter popularly known as Madzibaba VeShanduko used abusive language against police details who later savaged him and left him nursing serious injuries.
The hilarious opposition supporter was beaten up amid claims he was caught putting on party regalia while encouraging ordinary members of the public to join the Nelson Chamisa led opposition.
His brutal attack by police has invited wide condemnation and further spotlighted on President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s half-hearted commitment to ridding the country of politically motivated violence.
In a twit Thursday, police implied the activist invited his own fate.
“The ZRP is investigating allegations that Godfrey Karembera (43), who claims to be ‘Madzibaba Weshanduko’ was assaulted by Police officers in the Harare CBD today. On the hand, he is alleged to have used abusive language to Police officers who were trying to stop him from engaging in unsanctioned political activities in the CBD. More details to follow,” police said.
