Photos of two young men who were allegedly beaten up by soldiers last Sunday are ragging all over social media with many people viewing the incident as a human rights violation.
The young men, Taku Mundenga and Perfectt Khumalo were allegedly attacked by three soldiers when they were conducting prayers on a mountain in Harare.
Posting on his facebook page, Taku Mundega said, on 13 December 2020 he went to his usual prayer point with his friend around 4pm when the were ambushed by three soldiers.
He said, “Unexpectedly, I heard the breaking of twigs as three uniformed soldiers emerged from behind the bushes. The formation with which they were advancing towards us told me something was off. One of them was swinging sparkly handcuffs in his hand, while the second one was busy unwinding a rubber sjambok (mboma) and the third military officer was not armed. Unfazed, I continued expounding my point about Christ as the trio marched closer. It then dawned upon my intelligence that these men might have been tailing or ambushing us but what could they possibly do to unarmed civilians looking for God?
This incident among others has portrayed our country as a breed for human rights violations as these photos went viral all over social media.
