Thokozani Khupe’s breakaway MDC-T party has hit out at the police for not doing anything when Khupe was being verbally abused at the Supreme Court by alleged supporters of Nelson Chamisa. In a statement, the spokesperson for Khupe’s party, Linda Masarira said,
We were first attacked on Saturday, when we were going for our rally, but we did not think they (Chamisa supporters) were going to take the violence to Supreme Court grounds. It is a sign that the Chamisa camp harbours people, who do not have respect for the law.
None of the people, who were instigating violence have been arrested, yet the police were there. We expect the police to do their job because of not only what the attackers did in their presence, but they showed utter disrespect for the Supreme Court. For police to let them march and chant derogatory statements and hurl insults, as well as physically attack some of our members outside such an august house leaves a lot to be desired. They stormed the grounds in full force chanting [unprintable] slogans, pushing and shoving us around, banging and stoning our vehicles.
