There’s a steady risk to President Nelson Chamisa’s life and we notice with concern a perpetual invasion of his privateness.
Whereas we perceive that he’s a public official, we’re extraordinarily nervous that the State has put up apartheid-style surveillance which is in violation of the Structure in reference to the President’s privateness. The issues about President Chamisa’s safety lengthen not solely to him however to his household and different senior leaders within the occasion.
It’s sinister in that the surveillance is being carried out in a way that endangers the lifetime of the President. They observe his motorcade at terribly excessive speeds, they intervene with the autos in his motorcade and at occasions they nearly run him off the street in blatant violation of street guidelines.
We’re sure the intention is to trigger an accident after which blame his drivers of negligence.
What’s worrying in regards to the Saturday scuffle is that they bodily interfered with the motorcade and tried to seize and abduct the President. They adopted his motorcade from Marondera and when the safety realised that they have been being adopted, as per their protocol, they intentionally drove into Ruwa to stave off the followers who doggedly stored on their tail. The President’s motorcade then returned to the freeway, was Mabvuku and drove to the police station the place a report was made.
The safety observed that the pursuers had refined high-tech communication devices, have been armed and the car co-ordinating them had blue lights. Their manner was that of calm and skilled people. In any case, once they have been approached, they recognized themselves as authorities officers.
This isn’t the primary time that President Chamisa has been pursued by armed gunmen. On eight September 2018, whereas coming from a rally in Chitungwiza, his motorcade was pursued as much as Enterprise street the place his safety personnel blocked the car and the occupants of that car produced firearms earlier than driving off.
There was one other incident on 01 November 2018 the place he had gone to Domboshava for prayer and he was adopted and ended up having to chop quick his prayers. The dire safety scenario in Zimbabwe is such that it isn’t solely president Chamisa whose life is in peril however his household and the highest management of the MDC. Vice President Senator Morgen Komichi, Deputy Nationwide Chairperson Hon. Tendai Biti and Youth Meeting Chairperson Hon. Happymore Chidziva have all had their lives threatened in a single type or the opposite.
On 1 August 2018, when harmless civilians have been brutally killed by troopers within the streets of Harare, all of us realised that even harmless strange Zimbabweans should not protected below this so-called new dispensation.Apparently, the victims ended up being blamed for having died. Within the present case, there’s a laughable and nearly comical try to blame President Chamisa for having been adopted and being practically kidnapped.
They now wish to cost the sufferer.
The assertion by Monica Mutsvangwa is just not solely deceptive however malicious and a direct try to affect police investigation in the direction of a specific route of charging the sufferer and never the perpetrators.
We pay tribute to citizen journalism for recording these incidences. Although carried out by amateurs, the movies not less than give a sign of what occurred.
Keep in mind this is identical authorities that blamed Itai Dzamara for disappearing himself! Fortunately, we now have additionally recorded the car registration numbers which we now have furnished to the police. It seems that the pursuers are cloning car registration numbers and typically they use pretend registration numbers.
These threats on our President and the occasion are violations of the sacred rights enshrined in our Structure. Sections 52, 57, 58, 59 and 67 are our democratic rights for which we look like vilified. Part 219 states clearly that the police should be non-partisan, nationwide in character, patriotic . A authorities minister can not talk about on-going investigations with out compromising them, within the method that Monica Mutsvangwa has simply carried out. Concerning Saturday’s incident, one member of President Chamisa’s safety was injured as he jumped out of the automotive that had kidnapped him.
President Chamisa stays sturdy, resolute, undeterred and really a lot keen to prosecute the individuals’s wrestle to its logical conclusion. President Chamisa says “you’re coming towards me with sword, spear and javelin however I’m coming towards you within the title of the Lord of hosts” (1 Samuel 17 verse 45).
