The Zimbabwe People First (ZPF) leader retired brigadier general Agrippa Mutambara has said ZANU PF is abusing the army ahead of the looming election.

Addressing MDC Alliance supporters in Mashonaland Central yesterday Mutambara said the army is being used to intimidate opposition supporters in rural areas and the army officials in Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) should be removed.

"ZANU PF is abusing the military, being a military man myself l know the role of the army, but Mnangagwa is using the army to protect his selfish gains and intimidating villagers especially in rural areas.

We are aware that at ZEC they are soldiers who were deployed to rig the election, but we are saying enough is enough," said Mutambara.

MDC Alliance spokesperson Professor Welshman Ncube emphasised the need to remove soldiers from ZEC and stop intimidation.

As MDC we are saying to Mnangagwa remove soldiers from ZEC and stop intimidating our rural people, said Ncube while addressing thousands of Mashonaland Central supporters.

Meanwhile, Mutambara urged people to make use of technology in exposing ZANU PF shenanigans.

"We should make use of technology whenever you see ZANU PF acting barbaric record the incident and post on internet for the whole word to see, it is high time we end ZANU Pf dominance in Mashonaland Central."
