Cops ban MDC meetings

Police in Mberengwa East have banned all MDC meetings in the area while Zanu (PF) meetings are being held freely.

The MDC-T chairman for Mberengwa East, Ketrush Mubaiwa Moyo, told The Zimbabwean this week that police were refusing to sanction even private meetings for the party’s local leadership in the area.

“All our structures from branch to district levels are failing to hold meetings in the area,” said Moyo.

“Last week we wanted to hold a district meeting in preparation for our forthcoming anniversary in Bulawayo, but the meeting was disrupted by the police. We are convinced that this is politically motivated because Zanu (PF) is being allowed to hold its rallies,” said Moyo.

Midlands’s provincial Police spokesperson, Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko, said he was not aware that police had banned MDC meetings in the area.

“I am not aware that our colleagues on that side are denying others parties an opportunity to hold their meetings. I have to verify that with the regulatory authority in Zvishavane,” he said.

The MDC-T has also accused the police of banning MDC meetings in Mashonaland provinces.
