Zimbabwe opposition says soldiers search for its supporters

Zimbabwe's main opposition party says soldiers in the capital have been searching for opposition supporters to detain after the disputed election.

There is no independent confirmation of the allegation. President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said he wants to work with the opposition to rebuild the country after decades of repression under his former mentor Robert Mugabe.

Nkululeko Sibanda, a top official in the Movement for Democratic Change party, spoke on Saturday at a courthouse where about 20 detained supporters awaited a hearing. Sibanda said they are accused of inciting public violence.

"A lot of people are hiding," Sibanda said. "It's scarier than the Mugabe times."

Six people were killed during a military crackdown in Harare on Wednesday as soldiers opened fire on protesters, some of whom were rioting.
