CITIZENS Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa has decried rising violent scenes against his party members and castigated his rival President Emmerson Mnangagwa over the recent incidents.
The remarks come shortly after CCC supporters were inhumanely beaten up and “unlawfully” arrested Friday.
Several videos have gone viral showing police details beating up defenseless supporters prompting a citizens outcry.
Mnangagwa administration is on record for ruthlessly silencing dissent.
Posting on twitter, Chamisa described the conduct as “inhuman treatment of citizens”, underscoring that such behavior is “barbaric and unconstitutional.”
“Mr ED this is criminal, cruel and unconstitutional,” Chamisa tweeted.
“Imagine you or your children being so badly treated! The use of violence against CITIZENS is vile, evil and barbaric. Nothing lasts forever. This breeds unwarranted resentment against our national institutions. Stop this terrorism,” Chamisa said.
The spate of events which have unfolded in the last 48 hours have prompted political analysts to speculate that the forthcoming elections scheduled for next year could become bloody.
