Ignatius Chombo

HOME AFFAIRS minister Ignatius Chombo has vowed to crush demonstrations countrywide saying  police cannot stand idly and watch  ‘hooligans interfere with the rights of other citizens by looting property in shops, attacking innocent civilians’ vehicles and even police officers’.
Chombo said recent anti-Government protests have been violent.
“Section 219 of the Zimbabwean Constitution is clear on the ZRP’s mandate to preserve peace and to protect life and property. The Police cannot stand idly by while hooligans interfere with the rights of other citizens by looting property in shops, attacking innocent civilians’ vehicles and even police officers”.

Nationwide protests organised by National Electoral Reform Agenda (NERA) are due to take place today  aimed at forcing the President Robert Mugabe led government to level the political playing field ahead of the 2018 elections.
