MDC Headquarters Crackdown, 22 To Appear Before Court
At least 22 people arrested at the MDC Headquarters in Harare on Thursday are set to appear at the Rotten Row magistrate’s court today (Saturday).
Addressing members of the media Thursday at the HICC in Harare, ZRP’s Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said the police arrested several people at the MDC Headquarters who were locked up in two rooms.
The arrests, followed a crackdown targeting MDC Alliance leadership who were believed to be behind the protests and violence which rocked Harare on Wednesday.
Protestors on Wednesday took to the streets demanding the release of presidential election results from the ZEC, in a development which later turned violent as soldiers fired live bullets at civilians leaving 6 people dead.
“Following our search at the MDC party offices, we found people who were locked up in two rooms and I can confirm that these people are currently in police custody where we are yet to investigate circumstances surrounding why they were locked up in a room.
As the ZRP, we urge members of the public to maintain peace. These people who we picked up at Harvest House are in police custody and they are assisting us with investigations.”
