CCC’s Fadzayi Mahere left shaken after smash-and-grab attack

HARARE – Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere said “it could have been worse” after her vehicle’s window was smashed in and her bag stolen on Friday night.

The 36-year-old lawyer was returning from a church meeting in Mount Pleasant at around 8.30PM when the attack happened at a traffic light-controlled intersection.

Mahere’s Jaguar SUV was between two vehicles when a thug appeared suddenly and smashed in the front left window and grabbed a bag that was on the seat.

She “lost all her particulars” including phones, according to the CCC.

Her party pointed an accusing finger at state operatives.

Party leader Nelson Chamisa tweeted: “Violence ruins nations. Peace is the answer to Zimbabwe’s challenges. The battle for the hearts and minds of the citizens should be fought through ideas and won at the ballot box. This continued onslaught of violence and intimidation has no place in our nation. We mean peace.”

Mahere said she was “thankful to God for protection.”

She wrote on Twitter: “I know it could have been worse… What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. Aluta!”
