As Emmerson Mnangagwa cries for the removal of sanctions, his government continues to violate human rights. Heavily armed police officers raided MDC Alliance officers in Mutare claiming an illegal meeting was taking place.
Read the MDC Alliance Manicaland Province full statement below:
The MDC Manicaland Province is totally dismayed by the way our police force operates.
It’s partisan approach leaves a lot to be desired.
On Monday 25 May 2020 the police from Mutare Central led by the DISPOL superintendent Florence Marume visited our party offices in Darlington Suburb heavily armed with AK rifles and dogs on false information that we were holding a meeting.
However, what annoys us most is the fact that the very same DISPOL Florence Marume assigned officers from PISI department to a ZANU PF central committee member and a perennial elections loser Essau Mupfumi’s meeting that was held in Dangamvura’s ward 7 at TNT open space.
This alone gave us a picture that ZANU PF through state institutions want to make sure that they lockdown our party, the MDC Alliance. They want to make sure that we won’t hold any meetings, they want to make sure that they close the democratic space for but the writing is on the wall, they are bound to fail dismally in their devilish plans to provoke us.
The people of Manicaland are resolute and remain firm in support of MDC Alliance and The People’s President Advocate Nelson Chamisa. No amount of guns and dogs can stop change whose time has come.
As MDC Manicaland we are not moved by these ZANU PF shenanigans of using state apparatus in order to contain the people’s power, intimidate us and silence us.
MDC Manicaland Communications Department.
