Tinashe Sambiri|President Nelson Chamisa has condemned the detention of political activists by the Zanu PF regime.

President Chamisa also accused Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration of deliberately exposing perceived government critics to Coronavirus.

In a statement, President Chamisa denounced the prolonged detention of perceived Zanu PF opponents.

See President Chamisa’s statement below:

Earlier today(yesterday) I spoke to Fadzayi Mahere who briefed me of the unsanitary conditions in our jails & her own positive COVID19 test after her unjust detention.

Her situation exemplifies the despicable tactics being used by the regime to weaponise this pandemic against opponents.

The unjust and prolonged detention of vocal citizens such as Job Sikhala, Hopewell Chin’ono and student Allan Moyo exposes them to unnecessary risk and further reveals the malicious intent of this regime in jailing opponents through unconstitutional provisions and repressive laws.

The true tragedy of such actions is the failure of the regime to recognize that COVID-19 has no political affiliation. It continues to affect countless citizens across the country without discretion and only sincere, well-informed and sensible leadership will help slow the spread.

Now is not the time for cheap politicking and irresponsible actions but rather an opportunity to ensure that the spotlight being cast on our public health institutions and prisons results in deliberate corrective action.

I implore all citizens to make it their duty to protect themselves and each other by adhering to guidelines as we work together to fight COVID-19. Every COVID 19 statistic is a human life.

President Chamisa
