Mutare Man Who Was Viciously Assaulted By Soldiers Dies
In a very sad development, a man from Zimunya suburb of Mutare died from the injuries he sustained after he was brutally assaulted by soldiers in the crackdown on civilians for protesting against the government.
Noah Sahombe (29) was beaten so badly on Sunday 20 January 2019 that he was referred to Mutare General Hospital. However, his condition continued to deteriorate and he was transferred to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals where he died upon admission early this morning.
He is survived by a 24-year-old wife and two children aged 5 and 3. His death was confirmed by Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights acting spokesperson Norman Matara who wrote on social media,

Commenting on the death, MDC Alliance spokesperson for Manicaland, Trevor Saruwaka said,
We condemn this needless loss of life at the hands of the State. Noah was a young man who worked at a Filling Station in Mutare. The information at hand shows that Noah was not an active member politically just like millions of other Zimbabweans who go about their business without involving themselves in party politics. He is a victim of a rogue government which is now cannibalizing its own children in order to cling to power by declaring ordinary citizens enemies of the state.
We call upon authorities to investigate and bring to book the murderers of Noah Sahombe.
However, in a separate interview, President Emmerson Mnangagwa defended the deployment of the military and the subsequent crackdown saying the government had a duty to protect property.
Below are pictures which show how badly he was assaulted.
