Tinashe Sambiri|The MDC Alliance has dismissed Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa’s assertion that the popular movement is a terrorist group.
On the contrary, argues the MDC Alliance, Mr Mnangagwa is terrorising innocent citizens.
Below is MDC Alliance Youth Assembly spokesperson Stephen Sarkozy Chuma’s statement :
Mnangagwa: The Definition Of Terror In Zimbabwe
Emmerson Mnangagwa’s naked lie of branding the People’s Movement, MDC Alliance as a terrorist group must never go unchallenged.
We all know that by branding the MDC Alliance as a terrorist group, Mnangagwa seeks to chlorinate arbitrary arrests, pre-trial detentions, abductions, rape, torture, murder and all sorts of evils his regime is committing against the people of Zimbabwe, particularly those opposed to his dictatorship.
As he was correctly described by ZANU PF Spokesperson, Simon Khaya Moyo upon his dismissal from that party in 2017, Mnangagwa is a “dishonest” , “divisive” and “deceptive” character.
When he says the opposition is “anti-people” and “anti-democratic”, it is a classic case of a hyena accusing goats of devouring her cubs. The intention is to wipe out all the goats under the pretext of protecting her cubs!
Mnangagwa is the same man who lied to the whole nation that he is “as soft as wool” and the next thing he unleashes the military in broad daylight to butcher unarmed civilians on 01 August 2018.
Zimbabweans know the real merchants of terror in this country.
They know very well that Emmerson Mnangagwa is the face of genocidal terror attacks that threatened to wipe out the entire population of Matabeleland and parts of Midlands from 1983-87 when he was the Minister of State Security.
We, the MDC Alliance are the end receivers of the terror at hands of a terrorist ZANU PF government fronted by Mnangagwa.
We are not the ones who took over the country via a bloody coup. We are not the ones who murdered innocent people in the bloody 2002 and June 2008 elections.
We are not the ones who have been kidnapping, torturing and disappearing citizens like what happened to Itai Dzamara, Cecilia Chimbiri, Joana Mamombe, Netsai Marova etc.
We are not the ones who subverted the people’s will by rigging the 2018 elections.
We are not the ones who are violently destroying people’s livelihoods by destroying informal traders’ vending sites as is currently happening in Chitungwiza and Harare.
We are the ones fighting for people’s livelihoods by defending the rights of the people like we did in Chilonga.
We are the ones who are defending the rights of the poor vendors. We are the ones fighting for the defense of our constitution and rule of law.
We possess no guns nor knobkerries but our strength lies in the people.
