Sources who attended the  rally told The Zimbabwean on Friday that two school children died in a stampede while fleeing from armed soldiers and police officers who were repelling Zanu (PF) supporters who had besieged the school’s sports  grounds where  an assortment of Grace ‘s “donations “ were stacked waiting to be distributed.

“I have just arrived from Mutambara this morning. I can confirm that two toddlers were trampled to death  while fleeing armed soldiers who were controlling the crowd which wanted to receive free goods  donated by the first lady. As I speak, scores of people are still camped at Mutambara High school grounds waiting to receive their share “said a Zanu (PF) supporter who attended the rally.

Another source who attended the much publicized rally said she witnessed several elderly people who were injured in a stampede while trying to enter the barricaded school sports ground.

The source said scores of Zanu (PF) from all over the country spent the whole night camped at the school hoping to receive Grace‘s “donations.”
