Some villages were simply invaded by security forces, when locals were still asleep, Mimi Mefo Info has learnt.
Munyenge in the South West region was allegedly raided by members of the armed forces, which is the second time in less than ten days.
The military invasion Sunday September 29, 2019, is said to have targeted the bushes where indigenes of the village had fled to for safety.
