Zimbabwe Now In An Undeclared State Of Emergency: MDC

The opposition MDC said that the country is now under an undeclared state of emergency following the deployment of soldiers in residential areas without Parliamentary approval.

In a statement, the party claimed that the government is scared of the citizens’ demand to be governed differently;

The country is effectively on military lockdown. Soldiers have pitched tents in high-density suburbs, no reason of deployment have been brought to Parliament in line with Constitutional requirements; there is also an unconstitutional attempt by the illegitimate government to ban demonstrations and industrial action. Is Zanu PF declaring the State of Emergency through the back door?

Just last night, suspected state security agents raided Crisis Coalition in Zimbabwe chairperson Rashid Mahiya’s home, refused to identify themselves and banged at his doors. This is unacceptable.

The MDC is concerned by this dictatorial attitude by the failed government and its incapacity to lead this nation in any positive direction.

That is why we have insisted on dialogue as a way forward, premised on truth-telling and objective analysis of our national socio-political and economic problem, including answering the legitimacy question and dealing decisively with corruption.

… Zanu PF must know that any commands that stand against the people will not succeed. What is needed is a lasting solution to the economic woes arresting this country. An iron fist approach will not work, simple.

  1. It appears both main parties ZANUPF and MDC are more interested in power and confrontation.When elephants fight it is the grass that suffers I think the people of Zimbabwe should insist on politicians putting people first before their interests.As for military deployment Chamisa should not cry foul because he has promised violence openly at his rallies.Trust me, given his behaviour he will prove worse than Robert Mugabe.Ive said this countless times before.Just remember my words as the drama unfolds!
