News:Tsvangirai Prevented From Visiting Jailed Protesters

<vote /> MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai was prevented from visiting 70 jailed protesters on 16 September 2016. The Zimbabwe Prison Service said he needed clearance from the Prisons Commissioner General Paradzai Zimondi as he was not an ordinary citizen. Tsvangirayi had gone to Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison, together with other MDC-T leaders.

Said Tsvangirayi :

This is obviously unlawful. It’s intended to humiliate. I have come to see our people, like anybody else, and it’s my constitutional right. What clearance am I supposed to seek? But, anyway, we will follow their process, but this is an unusual instruction with the intention of creating confrontation which is not necessary.
