MDC Alliance MP Job Wiwa Sikhala's House Under Siege.

The incoming opposition MP for the MDC Alliance in Zengeza West, Job Sikhala, has been abducted from his St Mary’s home by armed soldiers, close friends and neighbours have told us.

A few hours before, Sikhala posted an SOS message on his Facebook page, reporting that gunshots had been fired at his house, several hours after party supporters had demonstrated in Harare.

“Gunshots at my house as I speak. Family scared but am reassuring them that I am prepared to die and they should move on if those doing so decide to kill me,” Sikhala wrote on his facebook page.

Zimbabwe’s state broadcaster says three people are dead after the military swept into the capital to disperse opposition supporters protesting Monday’s disputed election results.
Police say they have invoked a strict security act that forbids public gatherings.
Police spokesperson Charity Charamba went on national TV to say they wanted to speak to MDC Alliance senior leaders Tendai Biti and Happymore Chidziva. She said nothing about Sikhala.
Authorities say the military will remain in the capital until “this situation is over,” a reference to opposition protests over alleged manipulation of Monday’s election results.

Also the claims of the possible abduction were posted on the timeline of Job Wiwa Sikhala Facebook profile by Sibanengi Mswazie Dube. 
This is what Sibanengi had to say:

MDC Alliance MP elect Job Wiwa Sikhala's house is under siege. The is the sound of gunshots outside his home as the military steps up efforts to stage a second coup within six months. Can we all pray for Sikhala right now? Lets continue to pray for the People's choice President Nelson Chamisa as he prepares to take over the Presidency of Zimbabwe. Nothing shall stop the will of the people anymore. Lets pray for a peaceful transition in our country.

Before this post by Sbangeni, Job Wiwa Sikhala himself had posted the following post on his own facebook profile:
