MDC leader Nelson Chamisa has warned President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his government against pushing his party too far as witnessed by a continued State crackdown, telling party followers Sunday that the main opposition was only restraining itself from an armed retaliation against the abuses.
He was addressing thousands of party supporters who thronged Chemhanza stadium in Glenview suburb, Harare to drum up support for Vincent, son to the late founding party president, Morgan Tsvangirai, who is due to contest a parliamentary by-election within the constituency this coming weekend.
Not less than 20 civilians died in the hands of the military following two episodes of violent anti-government protests since the July 31, 2018 elections.
Several more were left nursing varying degrees of injuries.
