Zimbabwean opposition leader Nelson Chamisa’s convoy has been attacked with “burning logs” at a village in south-eastern Masvingo province, his party, the MDC Alliance, has tweeted.
Members of his entourage were taken to hospital after being badly injured in the attack by “hired thugs”, it said.
“Burning logs were used to beat up the delegation and block the road to Charumbira Village,” the party added.
It did not say who exactly was behind the violence.
Meanwhile, a privately owned newspaper has reported that armed riot police have blocked an attempt by Mr Chamisa to hold a meeting with provincial party leaders at a private home in Masvingo city.
