ZCTU Appalled By State Harassment Of Trade Unionists

The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) is unhappy with the continued harassment of trade union officials by the state.

This follows the arrest, harassment and detention of International Trade Union Confederation’s Africa secretary general, Ghanaian Kwasi Adu Amankwah.

Amankwah was in the country on a fact-finding mission following the violent protests in January that left 18 people dead.

Speaking to journalists on Monday, Moyo said:

The ZCTU is appalled by the interrogation of the visiting SATUCC delegation by State security agents upon arrival at the Robert Mugabe International airport on Monday.

The delegation which is in the country on a solidarity visit was subjected to serious interrogation by six State agents who demanded details and the purpose of their visit, where they would be staying, whom they were going to meet as well as issues to be discussed.

… The latest action is a clear indication of the government’s intolerance to trade unionism and that it is running scared of scrutiny.

Maltreatment of trade unionists continues to manifests in the so-called second republic and there are no indications towards reforming.
