Zim Twitter reacts to Fadzayi Mahere’s arrest. Zimbabweans on Twitter have reacted to Fadzayi Mahere’s arrest this morning. Some have called for the release of Mahere under #FreeFadzayiMahere while some are questioning if the charges levelled against her are being backed by a false story indeed:
Peter Ndoro: MDC Alliance’s Fadzayi Mahere arrested & charged with ‘publishing or communicating false statements prejudicial to the state’. One would think there are more important things authorities should be worrying about. The real crisis is that people are hungry.
MDC Alliance: The movement is under siege,Vice Chair Hon Sikhala was arrested,Spokesperson Adv Mahere is facing similar charges together with journalist Hopewell Chin’ono. Mayor Jacob Mafume has been in prison since December all on flimsy charges.Democracy is under attack.We remain resolute.
Jameson Timba: Advocate Mahere our party spokesperson has been arrested for freedom of expression. You can arrest us but not our resolve to win change for Zimbabweans.#FreeFadzayiMahere
Nicola Watson: And what’s happening to Adv Mahere is not going to encourage women in politics and is abusive
Gladys Hlatshwayo: You may write me down in history. With your bitter, twisted lies,You may trod me in the very dirt. But still, like dust, I’ll rise. Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom
Steve Zwitter: Logging in to Twitter, I see the timeline loaded with tweets about picnics. I keep on scrolling then I see #FreeFadzayiMahere tweets. I hold my breath, for what again! Hopewell, Job Sikhala & Advocate Fadzie are being detained over frivolous charges. We can’t be quiet about it
Namatai Kwekweza: #FreeHopewell #FreeFadzayiMahere Apart from the police statement that the baby is fine, we have not heard anything directly from the mother of the baby. Why would she be grabbing the police officer like that? I want to hear the mother say herself that her baby is okay.
Nomaliso Musasiwa: #FreeFadzayiMahere#FreeHopewell, We can not continue like this
Matigary: Nyembesi Kamuchacha now in the custody of @PoliceZimbabwe for peddling falsehoods. She had vanished from Twitter in the last several hours.
Jeffrey Smith: Imagine being Mercury Public Affairs and Ballard Partners, the two lobby firms supporting #Zimbabwe’s authoritarian regime. Taking huge sums of cash to whitewash such nonsense. The criminals in charge of the country should be jailed, not exceptional servants like Fadzayi Mahere.
Nicolette Gwati: @edmnangagwa @nickmangwana We are tired of this victimization of citizens by the state. Justice should be impartial and not used as a weapon to silence and punish those who speak out against the government #FreeHopewell #FreeJobSikhala #FreeFadzayiMahere
Denzo: ED wants to expose MDCA leaders to Corona. ED is digging graves for MDCA Leaders but GOD says in Prov 26:27, “Whoever digs a pit shall fall into it.” Don’t worry Fadzie, God will cover you, Hopewell, Sikala, Mafume & Political Prisoners. ED’s evil plan will befall him & his family
Tendai Biti: The regime has arrested @advocatemahere on the same flimsy charges which Hopewell & Job are facing . This a pathetic totally deranged illegitimate fascist regime .#FreeHopewellNow #FreeJobSikalaNow #FreeJacobMafumeNow #FreeFadzayiMahereNow #ZanuPfMustGo
