In an interview with The Chronicle at his Victoria Falls home on Tuesday, Home Affairs and Culture Minister Obert Mpofu said the Zimbabwe Republic Police will soon publish weekly bulletins naming and shaming perpetrators of political violence.
Mpofu said this will apply to members of all political parties. Said Mpofu:
This is to all political parties regardless of their size or popularity, be it Zanu-PF or opposition. We would ensure on our part as police and Home Affairs Ministry that any violent act as a result of political activity during campaigns will not be tolerated. Zimbabwe is a democratic and peaceful and we don’t expect violence in any way. No unruly behaviour from anybody, which disturbs liberty and freedom, will be tolerated. I want to warn and caution those who want to embark on such political violence that we will be publishing weekly bulletins to name and shame those engaging in violence. I have already directed police to do so.
