The MDC says the government is trivialising the attack on party leader, Nelson Chamisa.

Spokesman Jacob Mafume said in a statement :”Clearly something is not right, and for government to dismiss the claims without even calling for an investigation is worrying.”

He said this is what happened on the day :”On their way from Marondera, the team realised that they were being tailed and decided to turn into Mabvuku towards the police station.

Apparently, one of the cars stopped to block the convoy, grabbed the President's driver upon which President Chamisa walked over to their car asking what they wanted.

At that moment, the Toyota Harrier was blocked by another car in the President's convoy before they managed to escape, taking off with the President's driver.

The security team pursued the armed men but abandoned the chase when the President's driver jumped out of that moving vehicle injuring his arm.

They reported the matter at Mabvuku police station. Tomorrow, we will give a detailed report on the incidences we have mentioned."
