Chamisa Tells ED That "The End Is Nigh," As Police Brutalise MDC Supporters3 years ago
Leader of the opposition MDC, Nelson Chamisa has said that state brutality against “peaceful” citizens was telling that the end has come for the incumbent government.
He was speaking after state police violently dispersed party supporters who had gathered at the MDC headquarters in Harare where he was delivering his Hope of the Nation Address (HONA).
Speaking to reporters after a number of his supporters were injured when the police violently dispersed them, Chamisa said:
Mnangagwa has scaled new levels of dictatorship. Our country is burning … Why would you beat people who are at their head office? Is the MDC now a banned party?
The HONA had initially been scheduled to be held at the Africa Unity square but the police blocked it saying that chances were high that the gathering would degenerate into chaos.
