Speaking to The Herald yesterday, Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Cain Mathema said security agents are ready to firmly deal with protestors.
He urged people to engage in their daily activities without fear. Said Mathema:
As the Ministry of Home Affairs, we want to reassure the public that we will not hesitate to enforce the law today, tomorrow or in the next 100 years. We want to make sure that every Zimbabwean enjoys the peace and freedom we have in the country because Zimbabwe belongs to all Zimbabweans. Every Zimbabwean has a right to enjoy the freedom that is prevailing in the country without any fear, so as Government we want to reassure Zimbabweans that the security agents will be there to ensure security of persons and property. They should feel free to carry out their activities.
Speaking on the sidelines of a Zanu-PF extraordinary provincial coordinating committee meeting held in Mutare yesterday, Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said the law would take its course in the event of violence.
