Riot Police Disrupt CCC Roadshow In Gweru

Riot Police Disrupt CCC Roadshow In Gweru

Heavily-armed riot police officers disrupted a roadshow by the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) in Gweru’s Mkoba suburb over the weekend and arrested 12 of its supporters.

CCC candidate for Mkoba in the 26 March by-elections, Amos Chibaya, who was part of the roadshow, confirmed the development to NewZimbabwe. He said:

We were doing a roadshow in Mkoba on Sunday with our vehicles peacefully without any noise.

Police disrupted the programme, and they took keys from some vehicles and arrested drivers and some of our supporters.

I spoke to the Dispol (district police officer) and she was talking of unlawful gathering.

l then asked how she could talk of unlawful gathering when we are were not gathered, we are in our vehicles.

What is disturbing is that ZANU PF is allowed to move around with vehicles doing exactly what we were doing.

The incident comes barely a week after CCC’s Kwekwe Central candidate Judith Tobaiwa’s car was allegedly confiscated by ZANU PF activists who removed campaign posters from the vehicle.
