Demo Ringleaders On the Run

Police are keen to interview Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) president Peter Gift Mutasa, activist Promise Mkwananzi and some MDC-Alliance party members in connection with looting, incitement of violence and destruction of property that occurred during violent demonstrations instigated by the opposition party last week.

The MDC-Alliance members on the police wanted list are Youth Assembly secretary-general Lovemore Chinoputsa, Shadreck Mashayamombe, Munyaradzi Shoko, Christine Magorimbo alias Mai Chiutsi, Ishmael Kauzani and Simbarashe Bernard alias Juma.

Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi told The Herald last night that they wanted to interview the above mentioned people with regards to the violent disturbances.

Violence instigated by MDC-Alliance and its associates in the non-governmental sector left a trail of destruction in Harare, Bulawayo and other cities last week.

The organisers also used social media to threaten people who intended to go to work.

Hooligans barricaded roads, burnt cars and stormed schools where they beat up teachers.

They looted supermarkets, stoned or torched police stations and private vehicles and buses.

The hooligans also assaulted police officers trying to ensure law and order.

Most affected were Harare, Bulawayo, Chitungwiza and Kadoma.
