ZZZICOMP, a tripartite coalition of organisations shadowing the constitution making process said Nyaude and Editor Matamisa, the legislator for Kadoma Central, who is one of the COPAC supervisors in Mashonaland West Province, confirmed the assault.
ZZZICOMP said Nyaude was punched on his chest by Beauty Zhuwao, a rapporteur for COPAC, who accused him of insinuating that she had personal problems, a charge which Hon. Nyaude denied.
Nyaude reported the assault case at Kadoma Central Police Station and to the two COPAC team supervisors Matamisa and Walter Chidhakwa, the MP for Zvimba South.
Matamisa travelled to Harare on Wednesday, where she delivered the report done by Nyaude detailing his assault to COPAC co-chairperson Paul Mangwana at his Milton Park offices.
Zhuwao is part of the team of rapporteurs who are capturing the public sentiments expressed during the constitution making outreach process.
