GLEN View South MP Vincent Tsvangirai yesterday donated a wheelchair to Wellington “Wedza” Kanyanga, at his home in the high-density suburb.

Vincent, son to late opposition MDC founding president Morgan Tsvangirai, said the donation was meant to help a former party youth who almost lost his life in defence of Zimbabwe’s democratic struggle.

Wedza was allegedly shot in the chest in October 2003 by former CIO operative Justin Chihota as he was guarding the Harvest House in Harare together with two other MDC-T youths at the time, Ambitious Mazuwa and Milton Mberengwa, who were also shot.

The alleged perpetrator Chihota is a former CIO agent. Chihota’s version of what happened was that the three MDC-T security guards took his weapon and shot him, then shot themselves.

Mazuwa, who was shot in both legs and a thumb, is on record saying what really happened was that Chihota came rushing into Harvest House displaying a gun and he followed him to his 2nd floor office.

It was outside the office that they argued about the weapon as Wellington Kanyanga also arrived to check out the situation. Chihota then fired and hit Kanyanga in the chest. Ambitious was hit on the right leg and again on his thumb as he ran outside where he took a taxi to the Avenues Clinic.

Noone was ever charged with the shooting as the Robert Mugabe administration maintained a tight grip on security during its confrontation days with Morgan Tsvangirai’s party. – Zimbabwe Voice
