There is a heavy police presence in Harare after the government banned the protest, citing an ongoing cholera outbreak. A court will hear a case challenging the ban later Thursday.
Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights says police arrested Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions members in Harare and the cities of Mutare and Masvingo.
Police have beaten up and taken ZCTU Zimbabwe president Peter Mutasa. They have also ‘invaded’ ZCTU headquarters along Jason Moyo Ave. They’re seated on the ground floor waiting for any of the ZCTU members who wanted to demonstrate.
35 unionists arrested countrywide including the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU), president Peter Mutasa and Secretary General Japhet Moyo while insisting to proceed with the demonstration despite the police ban.
“It’s either we do nothing but die in our homes because pharmacies are closing and hospitals have no drugs (or we) speak up and stand up for our rights,” ZCTU president Peter Mutasa said this week.
