Kazembe Refuses To Condemn Growing Arrests Of Citizens For ‘Insulting’ Mnangagwa

Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Kazembe Kazembe has refused to condemn the arrest of an increasing number of citizens for allegedly insulting President Emmerson Mnangagwa on social media platforms.

There has been an upsurge in cases of citizens being charged with undermining the President recently, with two men in Rushinga arrested on Sunday for sharing on WhatsApp a video clip of President Emmerson Mnangagwa bragging that the bond note is the strongest currency in the SADC region.

Kazembe told NewZimbabwe.com that he will not comment on the issue but would rather allow the law to take its course for cases before the courts. He said:

I will not be able to comment on each individual case because I’m not aware of the actual facts surrounding each case.

I would like to believe each case is different from the other. Police are there to maintain law and order.

If the insults amount to an offence from a legal viewpoint and the police are convinced that a crime may have been committed they will arrest in accordance with their mandate.

But again it depends on each case. I won’t be able to comment comprehensively without the actual details of each case. Besides if these cases are before the courts we would rather allow the law to take its course.
