HARARE (AFP) — The Zimbabwe opposition said Monday that one of its lawmakers was in intensive care after being beaten up by President Robert Mugabe’s supporters ahead of an aborted campaign rally.

The Movement for Democratic Change said in a statement that the newly elected Thamsanga Mahlangu, a deputy for a constituency in the country’s second largest city of Bulawayo, “is battling for his life in intensive care unit after armed ZANU-PF militia attacked him yesterday”.

The party decided to call off the rally after hundreds of pro-Mugabe supporters occupied a city stadium and reportedly beat up opposition members who tried to enter the venue.

Shortly after the rally was cancelled, opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai announced he was pulling out of the race against Africa’s oldest leader and long time president Robert Mugabe due to violence which rendered the poll unfair.
