The newly formed political party The Patriotic Front has issued the following statement condemning the abduction and torture of 3 MDC Alliance activists. Read the statement below:
It is with consternation and alarm that The Patriotic Front notes the increasing numbers of abductions and torture being carried out on the people of Zimbabwe.
We call on the government of Zimbabwe to do all in its power, under the name of justice and rule of law to search for, detain and prosecute those responsible for the heinous acts perpetrated on three of its citizens recently.
If the abduction and torture of three Zimbabwean women, notably one who is a Member of Parliament can go unpunished or is found to be the work of state security agents, or the work of the parties concerned, then we The Patriotic Front condemn these actions with the utmost outrage on behalf of our constituents.
The Patriotic Front calls for immediate action from the judiciary as this case will form jurisprudence for future incidences of this kind, and should be treated with the severity it justly deserves to stop an escalation in an already tense theatre that is Zimbabwe today.
