“Our heroic youths at the venue fought a vicious battle to thwart the aggressors and the aggressors retreated to the cars that ferried them to commit the crime. Our Youth were able to douse the flames of the petrol bomb that partially burnt the tent,” said a National leader of the new CCC yellow political outfit.

He adds: “These are clear signs that ZANU PF is a criminal gang that has been angered by the thorough defeat they are glaring in the forthcoming by elections.”

The constituency organised its rally to drum up support for its by election candidate Dickson Tarusenga today at Macheka Square. CCC members in St. Marys are vowing to proceed with the campaign rally despite the bombing of their venue.
