Own Correspondent | MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has written to regional leaders, warning of the deteriorating political situation in the country.
A group of MDC Alliance youths this morning picketed in front of the Rotten Row Magistrates Court, in protest against what they felt was the continued closure of democratic space.
Youth Assembly Secretary General, Gift Ostallos Siziba, said during the picket, “democracy is under attack! In #Zimbabwe its no longer criminal but treasonous to speak your mind. The freedom to assemble has been suppressed.”
“The governors are afraid of the governed. Terror, fear and extra-judicial killings are the order of the day. We must #SaveZimbabwe,” he said.
While the youths were protesting, Chamisa’s spokesperson, revealed that the party is sending out diplomatic notes to regional organisations, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the African Union (AU) to help restrain ZANU PF and prevent the country from sliding into chaos.
Sibanda is quoted in the Daily News warning the continued thuggery against citizens will result in retaliation, “We are sending diplomatic notes to the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the African Union (AU), to rein in the trigger-happy Zanu PF and save Zimbabwe from possible civil strife.”
The MDC Alliance has in the past weeks failed to hold rallies, including a public meeting that had been planned for the Africa Unity square, at which party leader, Chamisa was scheduled to present his Hope of the Nation Address.
The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP), turned down the request to meet in the citing security concerns, given the deteriorated economic situation.
