Faith Ngwenya and Sibongile Sibanda recently sneaked out of the country to London on self-imposed exile.
The pair claimed that security agents had been trailing them for several months and feared that they would disappear like activist Itai Dzamara.
MDC-T Bulawayo provincial spokesperson Mandla Nyathi confirmed the report.
“Yes, the girls are out of the country and they are in London as we speak. The two have vowed not return to Zimbabwe until the situation normalises,” said Nyathi who is currently in London.
“Ngwenya is here to stay in London and she is trying to regularise her stay.”
Dzamara disappeared on March 9 and the courts have ordered the police to fully investigate his alleged abduction and the search is still underway.
MDC-T youths demonstrated in Harare challenging the authorities to provide a convincing answer on Dzamara’s disappearance.
