An activist with Tajamuka social movement is reportedly living in hiding following threats from alleged Zanu PF youths.

According to close relatives, trouble for Marvin Chimusoro started after he participated in a series of demonstrations that were organised by the once social movement in 2016 which got him in trouble with suspected security agents so much that he fled his family home in Harare to live in with his aunt in Bulawayo.

However, the alleged security details got wind of where he was staying prompting his aunty to let him go to stay in Victoria Falls with another relative where he teamed up with other activists and staged another demonstration which was disrupted by suspected Zanu PF members who beat up and kidnapped Marvin and some of his colleagues.

“While in Victoria Falls, Marvin said he teamed up with members of the opposition to stage a demonstration in Chinotimba which ended in violent clashes with Zanu PF youths who beat up the participants and he(Marvin) claimed that they were abducted and stayed at an unknown location for two days until they escaped,” narrated his close relative who declined to be named for security reasons.

Another relative said after the ordeal in Victoria Falls, the activist returned to Bulawayo and participated yet in another protect against the motive behind the ministry of information communication technology’s donation of computers to the Pumula library in Bulawayo ahead of the ‘Meet The Youths’ rally by the then president Robert Mugabe last year.




“Marvin was part of a demonstration that was organised by Tajamuka last year which was protecting against the ministry of ICTs for donating computers ahead of a rally by the former President which they argued was a vote buying gimmick,” said one close relative.
After the demonstration, suspected Zanu PF youths made numerous visits to his aunt’ s place where they harassed family members including his twin brother and sensing imminent attack, the activist is understood to have gone into hiding.

Efforts to quiz the relatives to open up where they suspect he could have gone and whether a police report was done hit a snag.

Pro-democracy activists have been arrested ,tortured or abducted by the government especially under the former president Robert Mugabe’s administration but since the ascendancy of Emmerson Mnangagwa there have not been any notable abuse of human rights.
