The United States embassy in Harare has condemned the use of security forces to take over the headquarters of the opposition MDC Alliance.

Armed soldiers and police officers on Thursday evening assisted over 20 youths loyal to the Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T in taking over the party headquarters, the Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House, also known as Harvest House in the centre of the capital Harare.

On Friday the US Embassy in Harare tweeted the following;

Meanwhile, political analysts aligned to the ruling ZANU PF have criticised the US Embassy for posting on the Twitter post a picture of police officers at Harvest House in January this year.

Zanu PF loyalist Takaedza Nyawanza quoted in the State Media says it was astonishing how the US continued to expose itself as handlers of the MDC-A.

“What is America’s interest in Zimbabwe? During lockdown, people were dying all over the world but America never issued a statement. Right now, America is burning, protests are taking place in all the States and US troops are on the streets and Zimbabwe has never questioned or interfered in their internal affairs.

“What’s so special about Zimbabwe? What is the motive of lying on Twitter using an old picture? Government issued lockdown rules and anyone found breaking those rules is supposed to be arrested despite his or her political affiliation,” said Mr Nyawanza.
