Jacob Mafume – National Spokesperson

The MDC is concerned with the continued persecution of MDC leaders.  Mr. Mafume is a Cllr for ward 17 in Mt Pleasant. Several councillors across the country have been arrested since January.
Members of Parliament and senior leaders have also been brought before the courts on trumped up charges some as scary as treason.

These arrests, abductions and torture of citizens including leaders of trade unions and civic society do not only invite isolation of Zimbabwe but are an impediment to the much needed National dialogue.

The MDC calls President Ramaphosa to emphasise on the need to end persecution of dissenting views in the country.

    Me thinksRamaphosa cannot help us. He is in the league of dictators. He decides that we deserve military junta that is running this country. How do we trust someone who endorses electoral fraud. Daylight robbery. The arrest of our leaders is none of his business. Really? Sad chokwadi.

    Ramaphosa has no soft spot for the Opposition in Zimbabwe, hence his parochial cry for sanctions removal without tangible ground facts.
