Electoral violence death toll now 6 as 26 arrested

THE death toll from Wednesday’s deadly clashes in central Harare has increased to 6, while 14 people were injured, police have confirmed.

ZRP national spokesperson Charity Charamba (pictured) confirmed the increased death toll at a press conference in the capital Thursday evening.

Three people died immediately as riot police and the military swept into the city centre – the soldiers firing into the crowds – as opposition supporters protested the results of Monday’s elections.

According to Charamba three more later died from injuries sustained during the clashes while 14 are still hospitalised.

Elsewhere in the capital, day-long siege at the head offices of the MDC-T as also broken in the evening as police effected a search warrant and arrested 26 suspects who had been in the building.

Among those arrested is Shadreck Mashayamombe a former Zanu PF legislator who however lost the latest elections on an opposition NPF ticket.

Charamba also confirmed that police were still keen to interview MDC Alliance principal and former finance minister Tendai Biti.
