As the economy continues to deteriorate, the main opposition party is planning to demonstrate against the government. This, in turn, has caused the government to make sure that if demos start, they will be prepared to deal with any acts of violence.
The Sunday News reports that Home Affairs Minister has directed the police to be on high alert should there be any acts of violence and destruction of property.
The Minister speaking to the publication said:
My ministry has directed the Commissioner-General of police to ensure that, officers are on high alert and ready to deal with any acts of violence or destruction of property
We appeal to all peace loving Zimbabweans to ignore these calls for demonstrations which are detrimental to the social economy development thrust of the Government
Cde Mathema also said they know the MDC was planning to mobilise the public and engage in civil disobedience in order to remove the Government or force Zanu-PF to the negotiating table.
He further assured the nation that the Government through relevant ministries and departments are working flat out to improve the living conditions of all people in the country.
“Therefore, peace is paramount if the nation is to realise the desired goal of economic prosperity,” said Cde Mathema.
