Ximex Mall traders have called for a ceasefire with MDC youths following clashes in Harare’s central business district. Below is a memo by Ximex Mall traders calling for a truce:
We the bonafide traders at Ximex Mall do hereby write this memo in respect of the recent clashes that happened in the CBD.
It is our utmost and sincere belief that the disturbances that took place have a bearing on the good image of your party and us as traders. We wish to point out at this point in time that we as Ximex traders are apolitical and have no interest in pursuing partisan and political issues .All we concentrate on is to fend for our families as we believe in honest hardworking for our families.

We met as informal sector members operating at Ximex due to the unusual events that took place on 02/01/18 in which the MDC Offices were attacked by a group of thugs that infiltrated our legitimate fight with certain individuals that had been abusing the name of the MDC through harassing us and confiscating our cell phones, clothes and smashing cars.
Our legitimate attempt to recover our stolen items was apolitical and had no political connotations whatsoever and we wish to distance ourselves from the attacks that were targeted at the MDC Headquarters.
We have made a commitment to ensure that both the Dealers and the MDC Harare Youth leadership will propagate peace and ensure there is no fight .We both stand for peace and in the event that any disturbances happen again, we should engage at leadership level together with the police and within the dictates of the laws of the land .We believe no one is above the las, let’s work together for the betterment of our country, let’s airtight against violence and retribution for a better Zimbabwe.
As it stands, we agreed that No Ximex Members shall engage in any fight with MDC but will cooperate with the youth leadership in identifying the culprits and ensure that the law takes its course.
Thank you for your Cooperation
