Tinashe Sambiri|The MDC Alliance says it is not moved by Zanu PF acting spokesperson Patrick Chinamasa’s threats to choke the opposition and dissenting voices in the country.
Briefing the media in Harare, Chinamasa accused the opposition of working with the United States and the United Kingdom to render the country ungovernable.
MDC Alliance Secretary General, Charlton Hwende, quoted by NewsDay dismissed Chinamasa’s remarks as mere rhetoric:
“As far as we are concerned, we know that Zanu-PF has suspended the Constitution and any legality in Zimbabwe.
Our members continue to be victimised without adherence to the Constitution and many are facing various charges.
Whether they tighten regulations, it does not make any difference because Zanu-PF is an autocratic regime.
We are going to fight them in the streets. It is our democratic right to do so.
We are not worried by their pronouncements because in any case they do not follow the Constitution.”
