Leaders of Zimbabwe's Bindura Residents Association Claim CIO Threats

Members of the newly formed Bindura Residents Association, said they are being threatened and trailed by unknown assailants, angry at them for starting the association.

The members said they have received anonymous phone calls, from people accusing them of forming the association to help the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, infiltrate Bindura, which is a ZANU-PF stronghold.

The Combined Harare Residents' Association, which the anonymous callers allege is an opposition wing, assisted in the formation of the Bindura Residents Association.

Association secretary Chiedza Gadzirayi, who is also a student at Bindura University of Science and Education, told reporter Jonga Kandemiiri of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe, that many members are afraid to leave the campus for fear of being abducted.
