Suspected CIO agents nearly assassinated the father of the tortured MDC Alliance leader Cecilia Chimbiri last night.
The incident reportedly happened at just after 8pm when Mr Henry Chimbiri was traveling to his home. (This is a developing story)
The development comes just after the three tortured activists who include Harare West MP Joana Mamombe, Netsai Marova and Cecilia, got UN backing, as experts at the world body ordered the Zimbabwe Republic Police to drop charges against them citing that they did nothing unlawful on the 13th May 2020. Within 48hrs of the announcement, the state rushed to heap several charges against them.
Mr Chimbiri was driving from the capital city, and he narrates the story as follows:
I was involved in a near accident, a high speed car chase and had two of my vehicle tyres damaged by potholes yesterday at around 2020hrs .
The cars that chased me were all unplated: a sedan black Toyota and a black Honda Fit.
They tried to sandwich my car but l would have none of it as l managed to escape at a high speed in my C240 mercedes. I am terribly shocked but unshaken by the behaviour of State agents who are being used wasting taxpayers coffers.
Previously on Monday 8th June 2020, l and Mr Kumbirai Mafunda (ZLHR) had a similar chase along 2nd Street and Baines Ave near the offices for the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights: it was by 4 agents who were in a white mercedes which l only managed to read the last number without the check letters 0441 ..
lt is my belief that they want to silence me and put fear in me. I will have none of it. And l don’t fear them. The struggle is on.
I had two of my vehicle tyres separated/ damaged by potholes along High Glen road near Olivine Industrial Complex in a high speed chase by two unplated vehicles. I managed to reach home in Budiriro. I humbly seek any help to replace the tyres and service the vehicle that is helping me run up and down for my three daughters who are now incarcerated in remand prison. An amount ranging $250 can help buy the tyres and refuel. I am now out of pocket and unable to move today to see my daughters in Remand prison. I am hurt and depressed. The State Agents are after my life. I will not have none of it. I will fight for my freedom of expression and media space.
