Former ZCTU President Urges CCC To Employ "Guerilla Tactics" Amid Systematic Rallies Ban
Former Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) president Peter Mutasa says the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) should resort to”guerrilla tactics” amid a systematic ban on opposition rallies by the Police.
CCC leader Nelson Chamisa recently said Police have banned more than 60 of the party’s rallies across the country.
Opposition activists have also been brutally attacked by suspected ZANU PF supporters during some of their campaign activities.
ZimLive quoted Mutasa as saying CCC should adopt underground campaign methods to be able to canvass for votes ahead of the general elections set to be held later this year. Mutasa said:
Zimbabwe is a military dictatorship. There is no doubt that the constitution has been suspended and constitutional rights taken away.
Citizens can no longer exercise freedom of expression, association or assembly.
Opposition gatherings are banned and their leaders are detained without trial.
Journalists are arrested for exposing corruption and trade unionists are brutalized for demanding better working conditions.
Under such circumstances, the opposition must not be predictable.
It must use guerrilla tactics and underground political activities to fully exercise their constitutional rights that are being unlawfully limited by state agencies.
