Soldiers, Police Block Chamisa Entourage On Way To Chipinge4 years ago
MDC president Nelson Chamisa was on Monday blocked from entering areas affected by Tropical Cyclone Idai in Manicaland province by authorities.
MDC spokesperson Jacob Mafume said that Chamisa was stopped at a roadblock about 12km from Chipinge, one of the districts affected by the floods. Said Mafume:
We were surprised that after hearing of our trip the soldiers and police mounted a roadblock 12km from the point from which they claimed buses were sinking and refused us entry.Feedback
We were told by villagers that other cars were being allowed. Even after we were denied entry we saw some motorists being allowed to pass the checkpoint, so clearly someone gave an order to deny Chamisa entry.
The people were actually happy that at least leadership from Harare was giving attention to their plight.
