Police Refuse To Sanction Alex Magaisa Candlelight Commemoration

Police Refuse To Sanction Alex Magaisa Candlelight Commemoration

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has declined to grant a request by Heal Zimbabwe to hold a candlelight commemoration of the late academic, Alex Tawanda Magaisa, in the Harare Gardens on 11 June.

In a letter dated 9 June 2022, the Officer Commanding Harare Central District Superintendent G Moyo advised Heal Zimbabwe that he would not sanction the event saying the organisers did not comply with provisions of the Maintenance of Peace and Order. Wrote Superintendent Moyo:

Your notification letter dated 9 June 2022 to hold a candle lighting commemoration of Dr Alex Magaisa on the 11th of June 2022 at Harare Gardens from 1200 hours to 1500 hours has been noted.

I am not in a position to sanction the gathering. You did not comply with Section 7 (1) (a) of the Maintenance of Peace and Order Chapter 11:23.

Magaisa died on Sunday at Margate Hospital in the United Kingdom after suffering a cardiac arrest.

The former advisor to late former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai worked at the University of Warwick, the University of Nottingham and since 2007, he was based at Kent Law School, the University of Kent at the time of his death on 5 June 2022.

His main area of teaching and research was company and financial services law.

It's tricky because there can be a lot of people more than that rally that was in Murehwa so we do not allow gatherings these days not surprising some people where bussed from as far as Harare , Bindura, Mazowe,Mt Darwin for that function
