Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Kuwadzana East, Chalton Hwende has claimed that anti-riot police disrupted the party’s citizens’ engagement meeting this Saturday.
Hwende who is the party secretary-general sought to also celebrate his triumph at the March 26 by-elections.
He said some party members were arrested even though police had been notified of the meeting.
The move follows similar incidents in Gokwe, Marondera and Chegutu before the by-elections in which CCC dominated. He said:
Today we came with a proper feedback meeting, properly applied for with notices required in terms of the law given but as you can see we have been stopped.
Police has disrupted our Constituency feedback meeting in Kuwadzana east today. This after we had been given authorization to proceed. Elected Representatives must be allowed to meet residents and report back. This is the whole essence of democracy.
