ZESN Flags Biased Application Of Mopa
THE Zimbabwe Election Support Network (Zesn) has expressed concern over selective application of the Maintenance of Peace and Order Act (Mopa) on political parties campaigning for the Saturday by-elections.
This was after police blocked opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) rallies last week.
Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga told Zanu PF supporters in Mutare last week that CCC should blame the police for blocking its rallies.
Zanu PF commissar Mike Bimha last week said CCC should canvass for support on social media.
CCC deputy spokesperson Gift Ostallos Siziba told NewsDay that the police were acting professionally, but the Zanu PF-led government was interfering in their work.
