Three opposition politicians in Zimbabwe have been found badly beaten and dumped by a road.

The politicians from the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) were reported missing this week.

They are all females including a Member of Parliament, MP Joanna Mamombe.

The other two are youth leaders Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marov who were arrested on Wednesday for holding a demonstration over the government’s Covid-19 response.

The opposition politicians were protesting reports that people were struggling to cope with the impact of the Coronavirus lockdown.

The Police attended the scene. They’re currently in the process of checking into a medical centre for treatment.”
