Chamisa Confronts Police Chiefs Over Violence On Party Supporters

Nelson Chamisa, leader of the opposition MDC has confronted police chiefs over the deployment of police to disperse non-violent party supporters on the 16th of August in Harare.

The youthful leader also wanted to know the identity of people behind the abduction of party members and human rights defenders.

Speaking to the Daily News, party Secretary-General, Chalton Hwende confirmed the development saying that the MDC wrote a letter also demanding to know why all their demonstrations were being blocked. He said:

We wrote a letter to police commissioner-general Godwin Matanga, to express our displeasure on the treatment meted out to demonstrators on August 16.

Some of the police officers who were bashing people were clearly not police officers. The police must give us the names of the officers who were on duty that day.

In our letter we also want to find out why members of the police are abducting people, and if they are not the police, why the people behind the abductions are not being arrested.

Meanwhile, police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi has said that he has not yet seen the letter.
