Anti-Mugabe Demonstration To Impeach President Is Banned: Organisers To Defy ZRP

Efforts by two non-governmental organisations to demonstrate at Parliament Building on Thursday with the aim of lobbying legislators to impeach President Robert Mugabe were quashed after the Zimbabwe Republic Police denied them permission to do so. However, the organisers are adamant that they will go ahead with their plans next week.

The Democracy Advocate Trust (DAT) and Occupy Africa Unity Square had planned to call for Mugabe’s impeachment by Parliament over missing public funds, following the recent publication of the 2014 auditor-general Mildred Chiri’s report.

The report revealed gross maladministration and lack of accountability of public funds at government institutions, local authorities and State enterprises.

However, DAT deputy director Elvis Mugari yesterday told NewsDay that they would go ahead with their plans next week. Source: newsday
