MDC Alliance Midlands provincial spokesperson Takavafira Zhou has slammed “police intrusion” at the party’s Gweru offices.
This follows a recent police raid on the party’s offices in search of what the law enforcement agents termed subversive material in the form of weapons.
Zhou said they hoped that the search was not a ploy to either plant subversive gadgets or to lay the ground for a hostile seizure of the offices and hand them over to the MDC-T. He said:
MDC Alliance Midlands Provincial leaders are puzzled by the intrusion by police at the Gweru provincial office on warped excuses of searching for subversive weapons.
For the government to give police a search warrant for subversive weapons at a democratic party office is the worst of lunacy, if not a ludicrous hallucination of the worst order.
Earlier this year, State security agents assisted youths aligned to the Thokozani Khupe-led MDC-T to take over the MDC Alliance headquarters, the Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House located in central Harare.
