Zimbabwe Republic Police has shot back at accusations on Social Media accusing the state of hindering opposition from campaigning.


The CCC whose last rally in Kwekwe resulted in the death of one of their supporters and hospitalisation of dozens others due to political violence have been told to seek local legal remedies in order for them to convene their rallies.


“The ZRP urges all conveners of public gatherings and processions to comply with relevant provisions of the Maintenance of Peace and Order Act Chapter 11:23,” said the Police in a statement.


“Meanwhile, the ZRP has taken note of the ruling by Honourable Justice Mugwira that CCC convener in Marondera must exhaust all legal domestic remedies in MOPA in order to hold a rally,” read the tweet on ZRP’s official Twitter account.


The likes of Alex Magaisa, Ostallos Siziba and Allan Chipoyi have been fanning the misconception that ZANU PF influenced the barring of their rally, conveniently orbiting the fact that they violated the requirements of MOPA at their last rally in Kwekwe.


ZANU PF spokesperson Cde Chris Mutsvangwa in a Press Statement that CCC and their leader Nelson Chamisa have to mend their relations with the Police and Media as they have turned into a mad dog party.


The violent nature of CCC is being carried forward from their days in the MDC Alliance when they attempted to burn Dr Thokozani Khupe alive in a hut at Tsvangirai’s funeral at Humanikwa Village in Buhera.


The ruling Party ZANU PF’s President and Candidate for the 2023 Presidential elections, Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa, ,and lately his Deputy Honourable Constantino Chiwenga are on record calling for a peaceful conduct before, during and after elections.
