HARARE – MDC Alliance President Nelson Chamisa on Thursday visited the recently demolished houses in Budiriro where he met the many families who have been left homeless as a result.

“It’s painful to see your house that you built being destroyed without any explanation. As a leader I’m hurt by this and I call upon all those who say they are leaders to be hurt and show compassion for these people,” said Chamisa.

“We cannot say it’s Council because they didn’t come alone but with riot police which makes us think it’s political as they were leaving other houses,” narrated another.
