heard how the ter­ror group, go­ing by the moniker bor­rowed from the Is­lamist mil­i­tant group, Al-Shabaab, would roam freely in and around Kwekwe City armed as they en­joyed pro­tec­tion from the for­mer Mid­lands strong man.

“This group should be dis­armed now that the per­son who had been giv­ing them im­mu­nity has been fired. They have been go­ing around Kwekwe killing and as­sault­ing peo­ple per­ceived to be en­e­mies of the for­mer VP,” Kwekwe Cen­tral Leg­is­la­tor, Cde Masango Matam­banadzo, told the meet­ing.

Pro­vin­cial Com­mis­sar and Min­is­ter of Sport, Arts, Recre­ation and Cul­ture, Cde Makhosini Hlong­wane and Mid­lands Pro­vin­cial Af­fairs Min­is­ter, Cde Ja­son Machaya, who were also in the meet­ing, con­curred and con­firmed hav­ing re­ceived the chill­ing re­ports about the Kwekwe-based Al-Shabaab ter­ror group.

Cde Hlong­wane said the group should be dis­armed while in­ves­ti­ga­tions into their heinous crimes should be in­sti­tuted.

“We have heard about peo­ple be­ing at­tacked with ma­chetes and at times dy­ing. In this day and era, it’s un­ac­cept­able and some­thing should be done. We can’t have a sit­u­a­tion where peo­ple go around ter­ror­is­ing
