Cape Town – Zimbabwean political activist Sylvanos Mudzvova, who was recently seized from his home and tortured by unknown assailants, has reportedly been discharged from a local private hospital, where he was receiving treatment. 

According to Daily News, Mudzvova, who was abducted at gunpoint, said he would "seek medical attention in South Africa after doctors failed to ascertain a chemical he claimed to have been injected with by the abductors".

Mudzvova, 38, posted on his Facebook page last week that his stomach had "developed some challenges" and doctors "want to sort it out". 

Reports indicated that Mudzvova, a member of the Tajamuka pressure group, was found unconscious by a passerby, having been tortured on his genitals and feet.
