Govt Won't Hesitate To Take Action Against Protesters- Ziyambi
In an interview with the Daily News yesterday Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs minister, Ziyambi Ziyambi said Government will not hesitate to take action against opposition parties that are planning to hold demonstrations.
Ziyambi said MDC should realise there are limits to constitutional rights and freedoms. Said Ziyambi:
MDC is failing to uphold the Constitution, they are playing double standards, it is the very same Constitution which declared President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the winner, ironically they are refusing to accept the verdict of the Constitutional Court but they want to use the same Constitution to demonstrate. Our laws are very clear; we want to hold them for their actions using the same laws. We can’t continue to have people who abuse the law for their own benefit. There are limitations on demonstration rights.
Asked if the government is planning to amend the country’s laws so that they can thwart any demonstration, Ziyambi said the laws are there to deal with any form of unlawful protest.
