ZEM condemns attack on war vets

The Zimbabwe Empowerment Movement (ZEM) has slammed police brutality against the war veterans who had gathered for a meeting at the City Sports Centre in Harare last Thursday.

Joshua NkomoThe anti-riot Zimbabwe Republic Police reportedly overreacted by using what a ZEM senior official described as unconstitutional show of force by using tear-gas and water cannon to force war vets to flee from their meeting.

The son of Zanu Ndonga leader, Ndabaningi Sithole, Garikai Sithole said: “The acrimonious action by the ZRP to illegally fight a peaceful meeting by the liberation war heroes and heroines is highly unacceptable, it stifles democracy. As ZEM we condemn the arbitrary and illegal use of force by the police mainly against opposition political activists. Zanu PF must respect war vets,” said Sithole. He also castigated the law enforcement agents for assaulting a commuter omnibus driver yesterday in Harare.

“If the police and city council police want war let them be deployed to other war torn countries. One other day they fought war vets now they have smashed vehicles. What’s that, we don’t expect that from those that must promote peace? I think this is a ploy by Zanu Pf to threaten peace- loving Zimbabweans ahead of 2018,”he said.

Sithole said no prophet is needed to see that his father Ndabaningi Sithole is now taking back his property (Zanu Pf). “These are the last kicks of a dying horse. Rev.Ndabaningi is fighting from the grave. The confusion and chaos from the part are nothing but my father’s grumbling. Mugabe must serve Zimbabwe by rewriting a true and unbiased history of the nation.

“No true history is true without mentioning the likes of Ndabaningi,Tekere and Mqabuko Nkomo. Our children in schools should be taught genuine history and not fake history currently taught,” he said.
