Abigail Chiroto, 27, wife of newly elected mayor of the city of Harare, was found bludgeoned to death late Wednesday officials said. She, along with four other activists and her 4 year old son, were kidnapped from their homes by men wearing military uniforms on Tuesday. The kidnappings and subsequent murders stem from the apparent political opposition and activism to oust Zimbabwe President Mugabe. Mugabe is currently running for re-election.
The four activists were also found murdered. Abigail Chiroto’s son, however, was returned unharmed. President Robert Mugabe and his Zanu-PF Party are allegedly linked to these murders.
I suppose that wives of politicians are not off-limits in Zimbabwe during election season.
