Zanu attacks continue

The house of Marjorie Chikwasha, an MDC activist in Ward 12 Nyanga South, Manicaland province was set on fire by known Zanu (PF) mobsters on Tuesday night. Chikwasha lost three bags of fertiliser, two 50kg bags of maize and kitchen utensils. She made a report at Nyanga Police Station, but no arrests have been made.

This is the second attack on MDC members in less than a week. On Sunday night, in Chiredzi West, Tawanda Imbayago's house, the MDC secretary for Ward 28, was burnt down by known Zanu (PF) arsonists. A report was also made at Chiredzi Police Station, but again no arrests have been made.

Meanwhile, the 13 human rights activists who were arrested yesterday for holding a peaceful demonstration outside the High Court are still detained at the Harare Central Police Station.

The demonstrators were calling for the granting of bail to eight MDC members who were arrested in May on false allegations of murdering a police officer in Glen View. One of them, Cynthia Manjoro was granted a US$500 bail today. The police officer was murdered by unknown people at a night club.

Tomorrow the 24 MDC activists who were arrested in connection with the murder will appear at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts for routine remand. –
