JOMIC in the districts: political parties

Political parties have called for the establishment of Joint Monitoring and Implementation Committee structures at a district level in order to effectively deal with violence.

Speaking at a Press Club meeting, the Zanu (PF) Manicaland province Chairman, Mike Madiro, highlighted the need for tolerance and respect of the rule of law by all political players ahead of elections.

“We have to establish some district structures to quell violence at a district level. Jomic is not an executive arm of the government but the police should be capacitated to deal with criminal matters,” he said.

Madiro added that their committee was working around the clock to make sure peace prevailed before and after elections in Manicaland.

MDC Provincial Chairman, Julius Magarangoma, said there should be no selective application of the law if the country is to move forward. He encouraged the media to be objective. “We encourage our journalists to be objective in their reporting.

The role of Jomic is to receive reports and complaints that might cause alarm and despondency,” said Magaramombe. He said it was the responsibility of all political parties to work towards peace building in their respective provinces.

MDC-N Chairperson for the province, David Mundirwira, said peace and political tolerance helped national development and restoration of social services like health and education.
