This is the second attack on MDC members in less than a week. On Sunday
night, in Chiredzi West, Tawanda Imbayago’s house, the MDC secretary for
Ward 28, was burnt down by known Zanu PF arsonists. A report was also made
at Chiredzi Police Station but again no arrests have been made although the
culprits have been identified.
Meanwhile, the 13 human rights activists who were arrested yesterday for
holding a peaceful demonstration outside the High Court are still detained
at the Harare Central Police Station.
The demonstrators were calling for the granting of bail to eight MDC members
who were arrested in May on false allegations of murdering a police officer
in Glen View. One of them, Cynthia Manjoro was granted a US$500 bail today.
The police officer was murdered by unknown people at a night club.
Tomorrow the 24 MDC activists who were arrested in connection with the
murder will appear at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts for routine remand.
