Mutodi fires at CCC members during a demonstration

BIKITA | Former Deputy Minister for Information, Publicity, and Broadcasting Service Energy Mutodi, a Bikita South Zanu PF candidate, allegedly fired twice at Coalition for Citizen Change (CCC) activists gathering at Baradzanwa Township waiting for Nelson Chamisa this morning.

He is accused of barricading the location with two vehicles loaded with Zanu PF supporters and throwing stones at CCC supporters. He was with Kumbirai Ziki, a member of Forever Associates Zimbabwe (FAZ) in Bikita South.

When CCC members confronted them, Mutodi, according to a source, opened fire.

“Mutodi, who was driving an H2 Hammer came to the rally with two other trucks full of Zanu PF supporters and started skidding at the venue. His supporters were throwing stones at CCC members. When CCC members confronted the group Mutodi fired two shots at the crowd,” said the source.

However, Mutodi confirmed that a gun was fired and said it was his security aide. “Yes, I can confirm that shots were fired, but I am not the one. My security aide took my gun and fired warning shots at CCC members who were stoning our vehicles.

“I was going to Village 8A and 8B to distribute maize and the CCC members started stoning our vehicles. Our supporters are gathered at the distribution centres,” said Mutodi.
