Douglas Mwonzora, the MDC-T secretary-general together with colleagues from National Electoral Reforms Agenda (NERA) have been summoned to appear before the Joint Operations Command (JOC). They received the summons on Friday and have been asked to justify why they want to hold a demonstration on the 5th of April 2017.
The Joint Operations Command consists of senior officers from the Central Intelligence Organization (CIO) the army, police and the Air Force and the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services.
We have been summoned to appear before JOC this morning at 10 am to discuss the rally. We have nothing to fear but fear itself.
We will not back down on our demand for the government to reverse its decision to take over the BVR kits procurement process. We are demanding the disbanding of ZEC. Therefore we intend to tell JOC that we will never beg for our rights. Comrades this is the time to unite. Together we will win.
