Arrested MDC A supporters

50 MDC Alliance members arrested in Mabvuku. In a statement, the MDC Alliance said those who were arrested were detained at Mabvuku Police Station. The party said: This afternoon, [police] violently disrupted our Anniversary celebrations in Mabvuku.

About 50 MDC Alliance supporters were reportedly arrested while several others were injured when police disrupted a party gathering in Mabvuku on Sunday. More than 50 were arrested and detained at Mabvuku Police Station. Several members and supporters have been badly injured.

In a tweet, MDC Alliance secretary-general Chalton Hwende also confirmed the arrests and condemned President Emmerson Mnangagwa for allegedly treating the opposition party as if it was a banned organisation. Said Hwende:

Police @PoliceZimbabwe has violently disrupted our meeting in Mabvuku and arrested our supporters. The MDC Alliance is now been treated as a banned Political Party. @edmnangagwa is a scared man he is afraid of the defeat that is visiting him soon. We must not be deterred.

Last week, two MDC-T members, Senators Khalipani Phugeni and Chief Ndlovu were arrested during the party’s voter registration meeting. The party said the arrests clearly illustrates the decaying public space in Zimbabwe and shows that the electoral playing field is uneven.
