Zanu PF youths wielding machetes recently ran amok in the Midlands - assaulting party bigwigs and police officers, while also sowing terror among supporters of the party.

High profile people who were set upon by the crazed youths were the party's national political commissar Victor Matemadanda and retired army colonel Panganai Kahuni.

The youths first went on a rampage early this month, causing the abandonment of a parliamentary primary election to choose a Zanu PF candidate for Kwekwe Central.

Zanu PF Midlands provincial chairman Daniel Mackenzie said the party was in a state of shock over what happened and what the youths' motive was.

The provincial executive has since ordered a probe while five people have been arrested in connection with the violence.
