Riot Police Disrupt WOZA Meeting
Zimbabwe Human Rights Forum
Officers from the Law and Order Section of the ZRP (Zimbabwe Republic Police) and
Riot Police today (10 June 2011) raided a house in Bulawayo where members of
Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA) were having a private meeting. All members of WOZA
managed to escape, but the police still proceeded to assault innocent tenant at the
Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights deployed two of its legal practitioners to
the scene of the raid; these however were denied access and ordered to leave by
the police.WOZA is appalled by the behavior of the police, particular at this point in
time when SADC is attempting, in South Africa, to broker a roadmap whose aim is to
create conditions for sustainable peace in Zimbabwe.
