Hwende Says CCC Will In The Future Hold Rallies Without Police Approval

Hwende Says CCC Will In The Future Hold Rallies Without Police Approval

Kuwadzana East Member of Parliament, Chalton Hwende, Saturday said his party, the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) will in the future hold rallies without approval from the police.

He said the remarks after anti-riot police had disrupted the party’s residents’ engagement meeting in Kuwadzana. 

Hwende, the party’s secretary-general, sought to thank residents of the high-density suburb for re-electing him as a member of parliament but police stopped him and also arrested dozens of the party’s activists.

The legislator said the decision to shut their meeting down came even after they had presented all documentation that allowed them to go ahead. They had applied thrice before being given a green light. He said:

They came and arrested our people.

After the elections we made three applications requesting for permission to come thank the people who elected us.

Three different applications have been turned down. Today we came with a proper feedback meeting, properly applied for with notices required in terms of the law given but as you can see, we have been stopped.

They are treating us as banned but I am not sure they can successfully stop a member of parliament (MP) and elected councillor from meeting residents.

We will be speaking to government officials that are responsible for this kind of behaviour. 

The councillor had successfully managed to bring all top officials from council to answer queries in the community.

Going forward we will just continue without approval because we apply, and they continue turning us down; we cannot fail to meet residents.

The police previously blocked CCC rallies in Gokwe, Marondera and Chegutu before the by-elections in which CCC claimed most of the seats. 

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) recently claimed that the CCC which is led by Nelson Chamisa, a former Minister of ICT during the Government of National Unity (GNU) has been failing the minimum requirements of the Maintenance of Peace and Order Act (MOPA)

Police national spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi recently said:

There is a difference between notifying and working on the security modalities with the police if you are to go by MOPA.

There are certain parameters which conveners of meetings, public gatherings and demonstrations have to comply with on their part.

He added that merely notifying the police does not mean satisfying all the conditions that are outlined under MOPA.

What requirements is CCC failing to meet??
Can the police furnish all political parties and the public at large with the requirements of holding rallies and gatherings. Those requirements should also be published in local newspapers and national TV for all people to hear and see

I normally do not urge or support actions which break the law, but CCC has been pushed in a corner by the ZRP who have always now refused to sanction any of their meetings.

CCC Political Party must carry out meetings with their supporters to canvas for votes in the incoming Harmonised Elections. If police continue denying them permission to campeign, then triple C may take that route which Honourable Hwende is proposing.

It is clear as day light that the CCC is a very incompetent party which see's violence as a mean to an end. First you don't attend parliament now you want to fight fire with fire come 2023 the people will vote for the mighty ZANU PF without fail after seeing what these dandaheads are doing.

As we all they is only one bush lawyer, the one who supports CCC and paragraphs his sentences in Capital Letters, his English is superb, he's argument is superb and the original bush layer was last seen on 27 of March by election. Since then, the so called bush layer that you always see bucking on this free platform is fake. either he comes in CCC or Zanu pf way he's still the same fake person

The ZRP is pushing into a corner so that you will be tempted to break the law and you arrested. CCC dont walk into that trap. That is the ZRP is waiting for period.
