ZCDC Security guards abuse villagers at Betera

Information on my desk is that on the 14th of December 2017 some of the overzealous security guards from ZCDC caught up with one of our villagers, Tichaona Mharira from Betera. He was caught in the morning while he was doing everyday work in the farming fields. They tied both his hands and legs together before setting their dogs on him while they watched. They also seriously assaulted him all over his body with big sticks. He sustained serious injuries and wounds. He was rushed to Chishingwi clinic before he was send to SCU in Mutare for further treatment. We are very concerned and not happy about these continuous heinous, barbaric human rights violations by these security guards in our village.
