Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Cain Mathema has issued a statement, warning protestors that the police will deal with them. Matema said protestors should not infringe on other people’s rights to freedom of movement. In an interview with The Herald, Matema had this to say:
We want people to follow the law. Nobody has the right to block people from using the Zimbabwean space. The Zimbabwe Republic Police will act on such people.
We understand why they are doing this, they are saboteurs. All we are saying is that don’t interfere with the freedom and rights of others.
