Zanu PF activists arrested in rare occurrence for staging protest in Mutare

Several Zanu PF supporters were arrested in Mutare on Tuesday after staging an illegal march and forcibly opening two flea markets that were shut down by the local authority last year as a safety measure against Covid-19.


The ruling party activists, who likely face charges of breaching coronavirus regulations, were reported to have broken into Chidzere and Sakubva markets and parceled out 3,000 vending stalls amongst themselves.


Riot police intercepted their procession and made arrests as the boisterous protestors marched towards the city center, singing and waving placards, local city press reported.


Mutare town clerk Anthony Mutara said of the arrests: “Order is very important in any society for the survival of us all,” according to the ManicaPost newspaper.
