“That a top government minister could appear on national television making such chilling statements confirms that the regime is panicking.

“Lawlessness is a hallmark of the Mugabe regime. Mutasa has provided the world with the proof that he is prepared to engage in Zanu (PF)-inspired thuggery and revert to state-sponsored banditry to quell any attempt to remove the government. Mutasa is threatening not the law, but death to President Tsvangirai and all perceived enemies of this regime. There is no better illustration of the absence of the rule of law in this country than this chilling threat of state-sponsored banditry,” said Chamisa.

“In light of these threats, we wish the world to know that we believe in peaceful and democratic co-existence with all democratic political institutions in the country. But we unreservedly assert our right to express ourselves in a democratic and peaceful manner. The right for Zimbabweans to express themselves is inalienable. We will defend it with our lives. We will not yield to threats or any undue pressure,” asserted Chamisa.Post published in: News
