HARARE – Transform Zimbabwe leader Jacob Ngarivhume has appealed for international intervention to save Zimbabweans from persecution by the Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration.
The remarks by Ngarivhume comes after investigative journalist Hopewell Chin’ono was on Monday re-arrested over remarks about Chief Justice Luke Malaba’s abuse of office.
Malaba is accused of continuous interference with court cases whereby he commands judges to handover judgments in certain ways that compromise the impartiality of the judiciary.
“We have been speaking against corruption. What government in the world would criminalize citizens for speaking against corruption?
“Recently the President talked about 3.5 billion that has gone missing from Command Agriculture. If we the citizens don’t talk about it what will happen. Nothing,” fumed Ngarivhume.
The prominent politician also teared into the Mnangagwa regime for the continuous persecution of citizens while protecting real criminals.
“We deplore the erosion of democracy in Africa. It is unacceptable, we want Zimbabwe to set a good example of democracy but this is not what we have in this country.
“We want the support of the region. Our colleagues in SADC must speak out. Our fellow compatriots in the region must speak out and condemn what is happening in Zimbabwe because if it happens here, it will not end here,” said the convener of 31st July Movement.
