The rallies in Zaka on Friday and Bikita on Saturday were both disrupted by police, despite the MDC-T informing the authorities well before time.
The party’s Masvingo provincial spokesperson, Harrison Mudzuri, said the police’s claim that the venues were booked by ZANU PF is “baseless”.
“We informed the police in time and they pretended as if everything was in order and they even told us that they were processing our application and we did not suspect anything,” said Mudzuri.
He added: “To our surprise we received a message that the rallies had been had cancelled in favour of the ZANU PF event. We would like to know the method they used to justify the ZANU PF rally ahead of our programme.”
Meanwhile, according to an MDC-T statement on Monday, a ZANU PF activist who was serving an 18 year jail term for the murder of MDC-T activist Moses Chokuda, was murdered by other inmates at Hwahwa Prison in Gweru last week Thursday.
The MDC-T said that the ZANU PF activist, Abel Maphosa was killed by Moses Pedzisai Mahuvava, Wellington Gadzira and Nyasha Masiiwa “after refusing to escape from prison.” – SW Radio AfricaPost published in: News
