We Are Employed To Defend ED, Police Officer Tells Magistrate

We Are Employed To Defend ED, Police Officer Tells Magistrate

A Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) member on Wednesday told Harare magistrate Taurai Manuwere that police officers were employed to defend President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

The police officer, Violet Kadiki, who is based at Warren Park Police Station, said it is the duty of police officers to defend Mnangagwa from those who oppose the government.

Kadiki made the remarks during cross-examination by lawyer Alec Muchadehama representing five opposition activists accused of violating COVID-19 lockdown regulations.

The three activists, Harare West MP, Joannah Mamombe (MDC Alliance), Cecilia Chimbiri, Makomborero Haruziviishe, Stanley Manyenga and Lovejoy Chitengu were arrested for allegedly holding an unsanctioned demonstration in Warren Park at the height of coronavirus lockdowns in May 2020.

Kadiki told the court that they arrested the accused for carrying placards written: “ED must Go”.

Asked by Muchadehama if saying ED must go is bad, she responded by saying “yes”. Added Muchadehama:

So what do those placards written ED must go mean? … What if the protestors were saying ED meaning another politician, Egypt Dzinemunhenzva?

Kadiki replied she only knew “ED” as the President. She said:

They were asking the President to go and we are there to defend the President from those who oppose the government.

Dzinemunhenzva, a perennial Presidential aspirant, was one of the candidates in the 2018 polls.

Kadiki said she could not identify the accused persons in the dock, saying they were wearing face masks at the time of their arrest.

The trial was postponed to Tuesday.

Wish your Zanu bae gives you syphilis,uchaita Job achikwenyakwenya # Zanu must go


I do not like ZANU PF with all its deriatives. I wish acquittal of all the accused persons in this case.

The Police Officer from Warren Park Police Station must prove that the accused meant to remove their ED by means of violence and not constitutionally.

It is good for the defense because the Police Officer failed to identify the accused persons in the dock.

The ball is slowly showing it's real weight.Power has always corrupted those with corrupt minds,Wiwa was unnecessarily jailed 67 times since the formation of MDC if there are those in the in the know and was equally acquitted over 67 times meaning to say ZANU through their political appointees are being used for political experience at the expense of genuine national justice.Zanu sanctions will not go for as long as the political Humpty Dumpty and zealots are there in the likes water headed people we have on this platform

The border gezi churned officer sounded very naiive, she thinks that she is ED 's body guard . The pro populo pro lege and pro patria motto they carry on their caps must lead them in carrying their day to day duties. I know Zanu pf is abusing those officers but they must not act overzealous.
