Hwende Says They Will Defy Police Order And Hold Candle Lighting Commemoration For Magaisa

Hwende Says They Will Defy Police Order And Hold Candle Lighting Commemoration For Magaisa

Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) Secretary-General, Chalton Hwende has said the planned candle lighting commemoration for Zimbabwean academic, Alex Tawanda Magaisa should be held despite police refusing to sanction the event.

Magaisa, a former Chief of Staff in the office of the late former Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, Morgan Tsvangirai died on Sunday in the UK after suffering cardiac arrest. 

Heal Zimbabwe wrote to the police asking for permission to hold a candle lighting commemoration for the Big Saturday Read (BSR) writer but police said the organisation did not comply with Section 7 (1) (a) of the Maintenance of Peace and Order (MOPA) Chapter 11:23.

In response to the letter from the police, Hwende said:

These kinds of letters must always be ignored this paper can not suspend our Constitutional rights. The law is being abused to sustain the ZanuPF regime. We must proceed with the candle lighting commemoration and let the oppressors have the burden of arresting and beating us.

The MOPA was introduced in 2019 to replace the Public Order and Security Act (POSA), which was deemed draconian.

POSA was used by the police to block the opposition MDC from holding rallies.

To me and many others MOPA is no different from POSA. There are names which only changed. The contents are still the the same. In the last byelections Police used MOPA to block 5 CCC rallies which they used to do with POSA. The Virgil is meant to commemorate the death of one loved.

NYIKA INOURAIWA NE MBAVHA DZAYO.

NGAAPINDE HAKE CHAMISA [NHC].

Hwende is trying to attempt to be what Mudenda is doing in Zanu PF.It will not work, simple. He has to follow the party position.
