MDC Alliance Secretary-General, Chalton Hwende, has claimed that President Mnangagwa is labelling MDC Alliance a terrorist organisation as a strategy to justify the persecution of the party’s leadership.
He speaks when scores of MDC Alliance officials have been arrested in the recent past whilst some are on a long list of people wanted by police for organising anti-government protests in the country.
This Tuesday, Mnangagwa threatened to unleash violence on “terrorist” political activists.
We present Hwende’s Twitter thread in full below.
Our Women Assembly Chairlady was in jail for the past 3 days and was only released yesterday on bail with stringest bail conditions. Our Chairlady for Bulawayo Province and several women leaders were arrested and are not bail. Their families are being tormented every night
Our Entire Top leadership VP Biti, VP Kore are on Bail, myself I am on bail for treason, our Vice-Chair Various leaders, Members of Parliament and Councillors are all under siege and unable to exercise their political rights. Civic Society leaders who genuinely raise societal grievances are labeled MDC and silenced. Journalists have not been spared they being labeled & condemned
