ZR POLICE MUST NOT TALK TO CITIZENS AS IF THEY ARE SPEAKING TO LUNATICS. CITIZENS ARE NOT LUNATICS.

I AM HAPPY THAT LAWYERS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS ARE REPRESENTING MADZIBABA VESHANDUKO. ARRESTING POLICE OFFICERS MUST BE INVESTIGATED AND CHARGED FOR ASSAULTING MADZIBABA. THEY COMMITTED A CRIME OF ASSAULT.

ZR POLICE SAID MADZIBABA VESHANDUKO USED ABUSIVE LANGUAGE WHEN POLICE CAUTIONED HIM FOR USING "UNSANCTIONED POLITICAL ACTIVITIES". POLICE MUST TELL CITIZENS WHAT UNSANCTIONED POLITICAL ACTIVITIES MADZIBABA VESHANDUKO WAS DOING. THEY MUST HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD INSTEAD OF CONTINUING MINCING THEIR LANGUAGE. OTHERWISE CITIZENS WILL BELIEVE THAT POLICE ASSAULTED HIM FOR WEARING HIS YELLOW GOWN.

IF MADZIBABA VESHANDUKO SPOKE IN ABUSIVE LANGUAGE, THE LAW SAYS POLICE ARREST SUCH AN ACCUSED PERSON AND NOT ASSAULT HIM. POLICEMEN ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO ASSAULT AN ACCUSED WHO IS RESISTING AN ARREST.

I AM SURE THAT THE PRESIDING MAGISTRATE WILL ORDER OR HAS ALREADY ORDERED THAT MADZIBABA VESHANDUKO BE EXAMINED BY A MEDICAL PRACTITIONER TO CONFIRM IF INDEED MADZIBABA WAS ASSAULTED AND TO WHAT EXTENT OR DAMAGE.

I URGE CCC LEADERSHIP TO FOLLOW UP SUCH CASES TO THEIR FINAL CONCLUSION SO THAT THEIR FOLLOWERS ALWAYS GET CONFIDENCE IN THEM.

What @V doesn't know is that only in Zimbabwe do police prosecute in order to investigate.

World over it is the other way round. Police investigate in order to prosecute.

Elsewhere any statement procured under torture is inadmissible at law. Zvino zveZANU Republic Police izvi, uuugghhh.... They torture in order to investigate

Man you are really lost. There are no shortcuts in law, they just have to do mainvestigations first not just start doing mamedical examination, magistrate what what. It is clear kuti vakamurova are going to be prosecuted ,if not he can easily sue the ZRP as a whole.

It's terrible guys, see I'm a very organized person so I keep records/ID numbers of most of my closest relatives ,just in case. I then checked @ *265# ZEC to verify if these guys are also registered and I'm shocked, because out of 10 it's only 2 ,me and my wife who are registered.I'm furious right now and I will blast them all when I meet them.I urge you to do likewise ,check for your closet relatives and educate them while advising them to go and register to vote.

Madzibaba veShanduko has given us an idea.

We should join this Apostolic sect, and all garments should be Yellow. Toenda kumasowe every day of the week pasi yekuti uri pedyo nesu. Whether you are 2, 20, 200, or 2,000.

It's not a rally
It's a worship session

Thank You Madzibaba VeShanduko for the inspiration

So if I am to canvas 1 or 2 people at street corners, are you really suggesting that I need to get police permission to hold a rally?

What a farce.

Just admit that you are having nightmares over the Yellow Brigade. It wouldn't surprise me if you guys in the Old People's Home are now boycotting bananas and aren't using margarine and butter anymore

"he was campaigning without advising the police of his intentions, which wr all know is a requirenent by law before any political party holds a rally" thus the UNSANCTIONED POLITICAL ACTIVITY of holding a rally musina ktaura

There is no such crime as "Unsanctioned Political Activities". The role of the police is to enforce the law & not to make up laws of their own imagination. Assuming that Madzibaba indeed used harsh language to the Police, the Police had no right to punish him. The power to judge & punish belongs to the courts. The police admit they tortured him. So what investigation are they pretending to conduct???

My little knowledge about separation of powers is that you cant arrest,prosecute and judge all-in-one. Kana ari mapurisa they should be arrested because they exceeded their authority. Only militias which operate above the law would do this. shame on you zrp.

Even if he used insulting language, should the police have sjamboked him? Are they allowed to do this? they should simply have arrested him and brought him to court


MuGrade 2 2 months ago

On the contrary,...if they're not allowed to sjambok ppl, why do they carry sjamboks???just to carry nje..even in your so democratic America,when it comes to torture,Americans are e worst..Guntenamo bay being an example..

It's sad that Madzibaba Mboko was arrested because of campaigning for e opposition.. there is no need to sjambok him for that,buh he was supposed to pay fine...How do you investigate a crime that happened in front of you,unless it's robbery..buh crimes like public nuisance, failure to a wear mask don't need torture or investigation..
It's sad chapter in Zim Politix..
