Zimbabwe's main opposition leader Nelson Chamisa

The government of Zimbabwe has denied claims that its spy agency had attempted to kidnap main opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa, as he left a rally over the weekend.

Mr Chamisa’s Movement for Democratic Change, tweeted that “Central Intelligence Organisation agents participated in a failed attempt to abduct him, at a rally in Marondera, 72 kilometers east of Harare.

The post was accompanied by a screen-grab video which showed a group of men gathered around an SUV.

The party later said that Chamisa was safe following the alleged incident.

But President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government fiercely denied the claims.
