Police Block ZIPRA Veterans March Over Yellow T-shirts

Police Block ZIPRA Veterans March Over Yellow T-shirts

Police in Bulawayo disrupted a ZPRA veterans’ Joshua Nkomo memorial march on Saturday reportedly because the participants were wearing yellow T-shirts.

Yellow is associated with the Nelson Chamisa-led Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) and the ZANU PF-led government allegedly habitually uses the police to disrupt the opposition party’s activities.

In an interview with Newzimbabwe.com after the foiled march, ZIPRA Veterans spokesperson, Bester Magwizi, said it was ironic that they were denied to exercise the rights they fought for. Said Magwizi:

Today we wanted to commemorate the death of our Commander-In-Chief, Joshua Nkomo, but the police stopped the commemorations because some of us were wearing yellow T-shirts.

Our organisation is not political and we only wanted to respect our commander. It is sad that we are now being denied the rights which we fought for during the liberation struggle.

The march was supposed to start at Masotsha Street and end at the Joshua Nkomo statue.

Several speakers, including senior ZANU PF member Tshinga Dube, were set to address the former freedom fighters.

The march was meant to commemorate the 23rd anniversary of Nkomo’s death. Nkomo died on 1 July 1999.

Zimbabwe must not think they will succeed in having sanctions lifted if they continue behaving in the manner they did of blocking the 23 rd Umdala Wethu commemoration March even if those wearing yellow t-shirts were from CCC Party because they subscribe to the same ideology, of the Chibwe Chitedza.

CITIZENS WANT 1 JULY TO BE DECLARED A NATIONAL HOLIDAY.

NGAAPINDE HAKE CHAMISA [NHC].
