Civil society groups say Zanu-PF has resorted to "smart violence" in rural areas as the country heads for a referendum and watershed elections later this year.

The groups say it will be difficult for regional grouping Sadc to detect this new form of violence.

Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition spokesperson Thabani Nyoni said the new and organised form of violence includes going to communities demanding identification cards and promising people food but those identification cards are never returned so that people not aligned to Zanu-PF won't be able to vote.
