MDC Anti Sanctions Counter Demo Banned
21 October 2019
The MDC march which was scheduled on the 24th of October to counter the anti-sanctions march has been banned by the ZRP.
In a letter addressed to the MDC, the ZRP acknowledged receipt of the MDC application but stated that it didn’t satisfy the requirements of the Public Order and Security Act.
The ZRP didn’t precisely state the specific requirements which were not met.
MDC Secretary-General Charlton Hwende dismissed this as a selective application of the law as the Zanu Pf is allowed to demonstrate without notice.
The ZRP is on record of denying MDC led demonstrations throughout the country.
