State security agents on duty at a government function in Chikomba, are reported to be in hot water after a DJ unintentionally played an MDC song from his music collection in the presence of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.
Chiwenga, who also doubles as the Health Minister, was the guest-of-honour at the event where he officially opened a rural clinic in Chikomba West.
Hundreds of villagers who were gathered took to the dance floor as former MDC Glen View South MP Paul Madzore’s song, “Handicheuke” blared from the speakers.
The incident, which was confirmed by the Children of Zimbabwe War Veterans Association (COZWVA), embarrassed ZANU PF officials present. COZWA wrote on Twitter:
Drama as music DJ mistakenly plays an MDC Alliance song by Paul Madzore at a ZANU PF rally, which was being officiated by VP Chiwenga in Chivhu.
And the whole crowd burst with joy dancing to the tune humiliating the officials.
NewZimbabwe.com reported Government sources on Tuesday as saying state security agents present at the event were being interrogated by their superiors over why the incident had transpired.
Soldiers, Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) operatives, and police officers were present at the function.
A senior military officer is reported to have demanded an investigation into the “mishap”. He was heard fuming:
How could that be allowed to happen? I want the names of all those members of the security forces who were present now.
They need to be investigated, especially the Director Military Intelligence (DMI) who was responsible for inspection.
