FULL THREAD: US’s Tibor Nagy Condemns Today’s Police Brutality On MDC Supporters

Assistant Secretary for U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of African Affairs, Tibor Nagy, today expressed his concerns about the way the police handled the MDC Supporters.

The Diplomat Tweeted:

We are concerned by the police’s unprovoked use of force against peaceably assembled Zimbabweans today and call on the Government of Zimbabwe to cease such violence against its own population. (1/2)

We note that the passage of new legislation has had no impact on the actions of the Government of Zimbabwe’s respect of freedom of assembly and other rights. We urge the Government of Zimbabwe to respect its 2013 Constitution in permitting non-violent public gatherings. (2/2)

The MDC was planning on having their Hope for the Nation Address before the Police violently dispersed the crowd that had gathered outside their party headquarters which were also blocking the road.
