The attackers were reportedly supported from Harare by the likes of Harare South MP Shadreck Mashayamombe

According to The Zimbabwean ugly scenes of violence, defiance and open mutiny continued at Sakubva Stadium, with the youths claiming to be defending Zanu-PF administration secretary Didymus Mutasa and attacking their Harare counterparts with machetes.

Propping up Grace at her Mutare rally were hangers-on including Local Government Minister Ignatius Chombo, Information Minister Jonathan Moyo, Zanu PF Mashonaland West chairman Temba Mliswa, Patrick Zhuwawo and Phillip Chiyangwa.
