Govt Deploys Soldiers In Civilian Clothes Against Protestors

A man armed with an assault rifle and in civilian clothes, sitting at the back of a van along Bulawayo Road on Monday, who the government claims was a terrorist, was actually a state security agent, a report claims.

The man was clad in black combat carrying an AK-47 assault rifle and seated at the back of a moving Nissan NP300 registration ABV2127 together with other uniformed police officers.

On Wednesday, police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba professed ignorance of the incident. Said Charamba:

I am just a spokesperson and I need to engage the police officers on the ground to verify your claims. Can you bring the pictures here so that I could comment on them after consulting all stakeholders?

The man is said to have been in the company of police officers and was firing shots in the air. At some point, the man allegedly fired at crowds of unarmed civilians who were protesting against the fuel price hike announced by President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Saturday night.
