CCC's Madzibaba veShanduko Says Unknown Assailants Attempted to Kidnap His Child

Citizens' Coalition for Change member Godfrey 'Madzibaba veShanduko"'Karembera at Parirenyatwa Hospital with party president Nelson Chamisa.

Citizens Coalition for Change activist Godrey Karembera, affectionately known as Madzibaba veShabuko, claims that some unknown assailants attempted to kidnap his child in Guruve, Mashonaland Central.

Karembera claimed that all this is being done to intimidate him as he is one of the top opposition CCC party led by Nelson Chamisa.

He told VOA Studio 7 that his child had to run for dear life to avoid being kidnapped.

“As I speak to you right now I’m with traditional leaders and we are trying to figure out what’s happening,” he said.

Karembera, who attends almost all CCC rallies addressed by Chamisa, was once beaten up at Harare Central Police Station following claims that he was acting in a disorderly way in the city.

He was accused of allegedly attempting to remove part of Mbuya Nehanda’s statue. Karembera has dismissed these claims as wishful thinking by the police that have since stopped pursuing the matter.

He is known for his energetic dances and singing at CCC rallies while carrying a stick synonymous with Apostolic Faith priests.

Police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, was not available for comment as he was not responding to calls on his mobile phone.

Three members of the CCC – Moreblessing Ali, Edson Chinembiri and Langelihle Zonda Dube – were recently killed by suspected Zanu PF activists.
