Opposition MDC led by advocate Nelson Chamisa has said that the party was waiting to see if the government was going to sanction a ZANU PF planned march over sanctions imposed by Western countries.
The party spokesperson, Daniel Molokele said that although they already know that there was a very thin line between ZANU PF and the government, they will play the devil’s advocate and give the State the benefit of doubt. Speaking to ZimLive, Molokele said:
We don’t have the full details yet about their march, but obviously we are aware that there’s no difference between the state government and Zanu PF and as such it’s likely that we are going to have Zanu PF having a different system in terms of the implementation of law and order in the country.

We will be observing closely whether Zanu PF is going to be treated differently from the MDC.
His remarks come after the State blocked all MDC demonstrations that were scheduled to start on the 16th of August in Harare before they go to other provinces.
Police argued that they had gathered concrete evidence, enough to suggest that the protests were going to be violent as the January fuel protests.
Despite President Mnangagwa pledging to ensure that the rule of law prevails in the country, some analysts say that selective application of the law has been on the increase since the departure of former President Robert Mugabe from the political arena.
