Harare ‑ The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) on Tuesday rejected the MDC Alliance’s request to demonstrate against the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec).
“Your intention to hold...a demonstration against the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has been noted. However, the demonstration could not be sanctioned,” Officer Commanding Harare Central, Chief Superintendent Ncube said in a response addressed to MDC-T secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora.
ZRP gave some of the reasons why they could not sanction the demonstration.
“You have already applied for a star rally scheduled for July 28, which has already been sanctioned and have already held two demonstrations against Zec... on the same issue,” Ncube said
MDC Alliance has been complaining bitterly over the electoral playfield, accusing Zec of colluding with the ruling Zanu-PF to rig the election.
