He said that the government was depriving citizens of their Constitutional rights including their right to demonstrate peacefully.

Tamborinyoka speaks when the president of the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association was reportedly abducted by alleged state agents for leading a demonstration over paltry salaries they are receiving.

He also gave reference to the disappearance of human rights defender, Jestina Mukoko to demonstrate how the government has been abusing citizens. Tamborinyoka said:

Jestina Mukoko is a renowned former broadcaster and now a human rights defender who runs the Zimbabwe Peace Project. In December 2008, she was abducted, tortured and held incommunicado for several weeks.

Tamborinyoka added that the government was also disenfranchising citizens by manipulating elections outcome in favour of the ruling ZANU PF.

He urged the government to first remove all the sufferings it has imposed on citizens before it calls for the removal of sanctions imposed on the country by Western states.
