The Zimbabwe Republic Police have blocked the Hope of the Nation Address (HONA) which the opposition MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa intended to deliver this Wednesday.
The police cited that they feared that the gathering would degenerate into chaos hence the need to block it.
In a letter written to the MDC, the police said:
As discussed in a consultation meeting on November 15, 2019, in my office, I am not in a position to sanction the event due to the following reasons.
The current situation in the CBD is volatile, the volume of both human and traffic has tremendously increased as we approach the festive season coupled with the payment of bonuses to government workers.
For this reason, the chances that your intended gathering will be taken advantage of by some rogue elements are very high.
Despite the MDC assurance that its demonstrations would be as peaceful as a church service, the state has so far blocked a number of MDC demonstrations saying that they had gathered “concrete evidence” suggesting that they all would degenerate into anarchy.
The MDC and other civic organizations intended to embark on a spate of marches over the deteriorating state of affairs.
