On Sunday… The family of opposition activist, Gift Tandare, who was shot dead by police in Harare last week, said his body was seized from a Harare funeral parlour by Zimbabwean intelligence officers before his funeral service!
After surviving last weeks beatings by Mugabe security forces at a prayer service which he described to The Oberver, Nelson Chamisa was mugged by Mugabe’s forces at the Harare airport on Sunday.
The BBC has video of Chamisa describing the brutal attack HERE.
One of the Opposition figures, Nelson Chamisa, was viciously attacked on Sunday at the entrance to Harare International Airport by 8 men while trying to board a flight out of Zimbabwe.
The BBC reports that the regime is stopping activists from leaving the country even for medical care:
He said he had been approached by unidentified men as he got out of his car outside the departures’ hall at Harare Airport.
“I was suddenly surrounded by, I think, about eight men,” he said later.
“One wore a green t-shirt. The other ones had suits. Then I was hit, I think about three times… Then I fell to the ground.”
Mr Chamisa said he had seen his attackers running off towards two vehicles without registration plates.
