Chiwenga, Kazembe, ZRP Boss Dragged To Court Over “Unreasonable,” Curfew

A Ruwa man Ronald Magweta and Women’s Academy for Leadership and Political Excellence (Walpe) have approached the High Court seeking an extension of the starting time of the curfew to 8 pm.

The lawsuit comes after President Mnangagwa recently imposed a 12-hour dusk-to-dawn curfew which begins at 6 pm ending at 6 am the following day. Magweta’s Affidavit read:

The curfew is unreasonable because there is an acute shortage of transport in Zimbabwe. It is common cause that the only public transport operator is allowed to operate in Zimbabwe at the moment is the State-owned Zupco buses or independent public vehicles operating under the Zupco licences.

The situation is exacerbated by the fact that while businesses close at 3pm, there is only a three-hour gap to allow commuters to get home.

They want the new Health Minister, Vice President Chiwenga to be directed to consider extending the curfew time to 8 pm to allow the citizenry to travel back home.

They also want police directed to issue a statement declaring that the curfew will be ruled out as being unconstitutional.
