Zimdancehall superstar Winky D, real name Wallace Chirumiko, was pelted by bottles by suspected Zanu PF hooligans before he could perform his controversial hit song, “Kasong KeJecha” in Kwekwe.
Video footage shows the singer being attacked with bottles as he was preparing to go on stage.
Kwekwe, in the Midlands Province, is President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s hometown. Sources who spoke to Nehanda Radio confirmed that the attack on Winky D had been planned in advance.
“Yes the group was waiting for him. It was well organized. Winky D had been tipped so the promoter brought soldiers to protect him but the militia was huge in numbers and had machetes.”
