Reading Time: < 1 minute

Zimbabwe’s opposition MDC-T has dispatched a team to Bulawayo to investigate a violent incident in which 10 people were wounded in the party’s offices in the city.

It has also ordered the provincial chairperson to submit a detailed report by the of Monday.

The party has condemned the violence, saying it is concerned by convening of unsanctioned meetings by senior leaders in Bulawayo.

Vice President Thokozani Khupe had boycotted an opposition alliance rally and convened a meeting with structures when the attack happened.

MDC-T says it is concerned with the trend that started at the late founder Morgan Tvangirai’s funeral in Buhera, where Khupe fled and hid in a hut.

The party’s arbiter-general and the head of security and intelligence, Giles Mutsekwa is leading the team.

Chairperson for Bulawayo province, Gift Banda, has to submit a detailed report to President Nelson Chamisa by the end of the day, but MDC-T says it suspects an external hand in the disturbances.
