The old gogo complained loudly of the continued price hikes of bus fare to local Zupco inspectors, not only did she complain about the bus fare but the cost of living especially since she is aged and receives no assistance from the government, unfortunately, two ZRP officers on patrol believed she was being harassed by touts due to her loud voice only to find her praising Ian Smith, while passengers watched as did onlookers the gogo was then removed by the ZRP and made to climb into the back of a police vehicle.

Passengers and all who witnessed the goings-on began insulting the local law enforcers for disrespecting an elderly citizen by the way they handled her.

A follow up revealed that the gogo was not charged but given a warning by the police.

    An arrest and warning by police for telling what this old lady knew to be the truth.
    If honesty prevails do most of us older people not have the same belief?
    Very, very sad, but very, very true.

    Gogo has no right to her own opinion in Zimbabwe.
