Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba has revealed that the police want MDC Alliance principal Tendai Biti and MDC Youth leader Happymore Chidziva to come in for questioning.
This comes after opposition supporters were involved in a protest which turned violent.
The supporters accused the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) of manipulating the results of elections.
Zimbabwe Defence Forces soldiers used live ammunition to suppress the protests and at least three people have reportedly died.
In a statement Charamba said, “Let me warn those who were involved in setting ablaze vehicles, assaulting vendors taking their wares, damaging shops and conducting unlawful gatherings, that the ZRP will all such perpetrators of violence. Those who were involved in these acts of violence also besieged Zimbabwe Electoral Commission offices and National Results Centre as well as the Harare International Conference Centre. They caused massive destruction of property which includes shops and we are currently assessing the extent of damage,” she said, warning that such acts will be met with the full wrath of the law”.
[ZRP] warned political leaders who have incited their followers into committing acts of violence that the long arm of the law will certainly catch up with them… This is due to the fact that the degree of disturbances of law and order have reached a magnitude whereby the regular police officers and the reserve members have been unable to cope.
