Tinashe Sambiri|The MDC Alliance has described the arrest of its three youth assembly members, Joana Mamombe, Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova as a calculated ploy by Zanu PF to silence dissenting voices.
Joana and Cecilia were arrested as they were going through their routine reporting procedure in line with their bail conditions.Police then arrested Netsai as she was waiting for her colleagues.
The three were arrested for addressing a news conference in solidarity with jailed human rights activist Makomborero Haruvizishe.
In an interview with ZimEye.com on Saturday morning, MDC Alliance deputy spokesperson Clifford Hlatywayo denounced the harassment of the trio.
“The arrest of the trio is a calculated ploy by Mr Mnangagwa to silence dissenting voices. The clueless and cruel regime wants to destroy young people.
The regime is fighting the young, in actual fact the tired, old and useless Zanu PF bigwigs are fighting the future of the country.
They are fighting the means of production.
Joana, Netsai and Cecilia are true freedom fighters.They are being persecuted for denouncing Zanu PF tyranny.
Mr Mnangagwa is desperate to destroy the future of young people. The regime is afraid of the people,” said Hlatywayo.
