CCC Accuses ZANU PF Of Abusing Police After Prohibition Of Tree Panting Event
The Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has accused ZANU PF of abusing the police after its leader, Nelson Chamisa, was blocked from launching a national tree-planting programme this Thursday in Gutu.
CCC spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere said ZANU PF is scared of the opposition, adding that they will challenge the prohibition by the police in court. Said Mahere:
Our lawyers are challenging the illegal prohibition. Zanu PF must stop abusing the police. It is not a crime to plant trees! Varikukwata! (They are scared).Feedback
Police in Masvingo invoked the Maintenance of Peace & Order Act to ban a tree planting day activity organised by CCC member Lloyd Mupfudze in ward 4, Gutu, where Chamisa was expected to preside.
In a letter addressed to Mupfudze, Chief Superintendent Taurai Joackim Mambure, who is the Regulating Authority for Masvingo East Police District, said the tree-planting-day event cannot go ahead because another political party had already notified them of its intention to hold a political meeting in the same ward.

Mambure warned CCC that failure to comply with the prohibition will have serious consequences like imprisonment.
CCC says its mass tree planting day event seeks to promote reforestation and afforestation in the countryside to ensure that communities protect the environment.
