PDP had notified the police of its intention to hold a rally to mark its first anniversary, but the police said they could not allow it, as they were stretched in trying to prevent full-scale war and terror.

PDP's anniversary rally was scheduled for White City Stadium in Bulawayo on Sunday.

In the letter officer commanding Bulawayo West district police, Chief Superintendent Mthokozisi Manzini Moyo wrote,
