Tinashe Sambiri|MDC MDC Alliance Youth Assembly leader, Tererai Obey Sithole, has described Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa and his Zanu PF bootlickers as ” unrepentant murderers and looters.”

Sithole condemned the persecution of MDC Alliance vice chairperson Hon Job Sikhala and journalist Hopewell Chin’ono by Mr Mnangagwa’s administration.

“Tipeiwo Jobho wedu, haasi muranda wenyu.


Mnangagwa and his cabal of unrepentant murderers and looters must learn to prioritize things that matter.

It must sink in their heads that criminalizing the freedom of expression will not in any way alleviate the crisis we are faced with as a country. Fix the economy not the people asking you to fix it.
Free Hopewell Chin’ono now,” wrote Sithole on his official Facebook page.

MDC Alliance Youth Assembly Secretary General, Gift Ostallos Siziba also wrote:

“Harare metropolitan Mayor Jacob Mafume is in prison. We have it on authority that he is not feeling well. The regime won’t allow him his constitutional right to a health. He need urgent medical treatment.
Below is a petition that you can sign to add your voice in the call for Justice. “

In a statement MDC Alliance National Secretary for Welfare, Maureen Kademaunga denounced the harassment of party members and human rights activists.

“The list keeps growing. Fadzai Mahere, our party spokesperson has been taken in. Political repression under the guise of Law & Order is on the rise. No-one is safe anymore.

Mayor Jacob Mafume is a political prisoner who is being persecuted for his allegiance to the MDC Alliance. Bail is his constitutional right. His health is under serious threat as he shares a cell with 40 prisoners. He has severe Covid19 symptoms. #FreeJacobMafume.”
