Tinashe Sambiri|MDC Alliance vice chairperson Hon Job Sikhala has vowed to confront the Zanu PF leader Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa over the politicization of lockdown restrictions.

Mr Mnangagwa is taking advantage of lockdown restrictions to muzzle alternative voices, according to Hon Sikhala.

Zanu PF is holding party meeting in spite of the lockdown restrictions – while blocking perceived opponents from carrying out political programmes.

Writing on Twitter, Hon Sikhala warned Mnangagwa against using COVID-19 restrictions to suppress people’s constitutional rights.

“This is exactly what Emmerson Mnangagwa is doing to us.

There shall be moments when we make the Malema pronouncements.

Using lockdown to usurp people’s constitutional rights is a recipe for disaster.

Be warned, restore our political rights. We want our right to vote back.

Marko Haruzivishe is suffering. We need to do something. One of us can’t he kept in jail for such a long time and operate as if everything is normal.

There is need to raise the bar of demanding his immediate release.

He is suffering for democracy & the future of his generation,” argued Hon Sikhala.
