Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said he learnt with great shock and concern about the savage beatings of MDC-T activists in Zhombe, by uniformed members of the Zimbabwe National Army last week.

The attack on the supporters left 40 injured, five of them seriously, when soldiers went on a rampage at Samambwa business centre in Zhombe, in the Midlands province. Tsvangirai said soldiers should not be terrorizing citizens who they are supposed to be protecting from external attacks.
