CCC Lawyer Protests Stringent Police Conditions For Rally

CCC Lawyer Protests Stringent Police Conditions For Rally

The Nelson Chamisa led Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has written to the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP), protesting the strict conditions set for the party’s star rally in Highfields, Harare this Sunday.

Last week ZRP gave CCC permission to hold its rally at Zimbabwe Grounds but warned the party that they would disperse the gathering if the conditions are not met.

Those conditions among others include observance of COVID-19 protocols, a ban on toyi toying, a ban on the busing of people from other constituencies and chanting of party slogans.

On Friday, CCC through lawyer Obey Shava wrote to the police protesting the strict conditions as illegality and demanded a reversal.

In the letter, Shava queried why the police conditions had not been applied to ZANU PF and other political parties such as Douglas Mwonzora’s MDC-T. He wrote:

We are advised that the conditions set in your letter are unconstitutional for the following reasons: to the extent that they prohibit members of our clients from chanting slogans in support of their political party.

Such a prohibition abrogates their right to freedom of assembly and association as provided for in terms of section 58 of the constitution.

To the extent that aforementioned conditions have not been placed upon other political parties, in particular, ZANU PF and MDC-T which held their own rallies recently, such conditions violate the pre-emptory right to equality before the law and right to equal protection and benefit of the law as enshrined under Section 56 of the constitution.

CCC filed an urgent High Court application last night challenging the police order.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, ZANU PF supporters reportedly blocked a rally by CCC candidate for Harare East constituency, Tendai Biti.

This comes after audio recordings of ZANU PF officials allegedly plotting to work with ZRP to disrupt CCC gatherings have also gone viral on various social media platforms.

Chinoshamisa chinhu 1 why is it Zanu is so afraid of CCC whilst they go about claiming that it's a look away small party. Chero nevapfanha vedzungu vana Tkt na Vybz Im sure you don't have an answer. I'll simply tell it as it is CCC is no longer a threat, but it's officially the Ruling Party whether you want it or not, We have loyalists within your so called Zanu. They now see the true nature of your so called Zanu party, it's full of ****, corruption, gross human rights violations. Zanu is nolonger patriotic, you can actually help us by removing the patriotic part, because it no longer exists in your Zanu whatsoever.

Munhu wese CCC, kana vakuda zve noise let's give them noise... Nhasi komamiswa **** vapfanha veZanu makajaidzwa

i forgot yu @zodok

may i have your definition of rulling maybe my dictionary is wrong.

.... nanhasi muchi kungoda nezvangu here imi mdara imi. undisiye wazvinzwa ka. kuda kana kusazvida UNLESS God desires, zviome zvinake sei ED will still be the for ME, for you & everyone.

Guys you have to understand that ZANU-PF has masses following - FACT

#yellowbrigade handirambe kuti nayo inavowo vanhu but mucha kwapaidzwa, kusvasvangwa, kurikitwa, kushadaurwa, kuvhenekwa mugo vhovhonorwa naro bato remaGANDANGA iri= ✅✅✅ MARK my words

problem yenyu ndeye kugara mapromiser Hondo dzamusinga goni, haa nekutaridza ruvengo pachena rwema CERTAIN sectors ndipo pamuno fira.

sarai zvenyu muchi shora neku vukura asi ndinoti kwamuri,
.... NGONI DZASHE KWAMURI muwanirwe tsitsinenyasha

KUDA KWASHE NGAKUITWE
... to GOD be the GLORY ...

VIVA = ZANU-PF = VIVA

SO DOES YOUR DICTIONARY DEFINE RULLIN AS -group of individuals who are driven by vindictiveness to subvert and undermine the will to undermine a constitutionally elected GOVERNMENT

Shame on you guys
