Real Problem Is AG Tomana: MDC UK & Ireland Youth
|http://changezimbabwe.comOn February 21, the 88th of President Robert Mugabe, MDC youths in the UK will be demanding the immediate release of our Youth President Solomon Madzore, and other national youth leaders, Tungamirai Madzokere, brothers Lazarus and Stanford Maengahama, Phineas Nhatarikwa, Stanford Mangwiro, Yvonne Musarurwa, Rebecca Mafikeni who have been in remand for almost a year with no trial.
We will also be demanding the immediate release of Paul Rukanda, the MDC Organising Secretary for Glen View South in Harare who was arrested last week over the same allegations of murdering police officer Petros Mutedza in Glen View last May, but was only arrested last week.
We condemn in the strongest terms the unwarranted harassment and intimidation which comes in addition to thousands of our youth members and supporters that are either in detention and illegally being denied bail, or are unending bail just because Zanu PF wants to keep a noose around their necks.
This is clearly a ploy by an old and idealess organization to destabilise and disturb the Youth Assembly activities and operations. They are only suspects. They are innocent and deserve to be given bail and enjoy their fundamental and democratic freedoms as citizens of Zimbabwe.
The real problem is Johannes Tomana who denied political activists their freedom. We condemn the partisan approach by the Attorney-General’s Office and we call for his resignation because he has failed to be professional.
Justice delayed is indeed justice denied. This culture of abusing state institutions for political gain is unacceptable and should never go unchecked. AG Tomana has publicly declared his support for Zanu (PF) , so he must resign and go work full time in ZANU PF.
He is by default unfit to be the Attorney General of Zimbabwe.
As a nation in a transition we need to move forward for the benefit of the nation. We are also calling for the three political parties in the GPA not to renew Chihuri’s term of office whose term of office expired on Tuesday.
This this would be the first step in reforming the police force of Zimbabwe only if Chihuri is out of office. He has failed to protect the people of Zimbabwe, non ZANU PF, are arrested on false charges.
We cannot continue to have him as the man in charge of the police force. Tomana and Chihuri have seriously undermined our public institutions. If the two continue, their stay would undermine the credibility of future elections.
We call for the immediate release of all the political detainees. We demands justice which is guided by principles of justice and professionalism Innocent people should not be sacrificed by Zanu PF through the Zimbabwe Republic Police in an attempt to silence our Youth Assembly.
Solomon Madzore is our Signal, he is of great importance to us all MDC Youth. We elected him to that position to the extant that whatever happens to him, affects all of us.
Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s should ensure that these public institutions are led by genuine individuals that have a strong belief in serving the people and not their personal masters.
Free Them Now!!! Demo Tuesday February 21, 13:00 Zimbabwe Embassy London. For times in other countries check with local structures of the MDC.
