©️   THREE MDC Alliance officials who staged a flash demonstration in Harare over “hunger” were arrested yesterday, the Daily News can report.

The three are MDC secretary for policy and Harare West legislator Joanna Mamombe, youth assembly vice-chairperson Cecilia Chimbiri and deputy organising secretary Netsai Marowa. They were arrested after demonstrating in Warren Park.
National police spokesperson Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrests over an unsanctioned demonstration.
“There was an unsanctioned demonstration that took place in Warren Park. Police are still conducting some investigations over the matter. Yes, there are some people who have been picked up over the demo, but we will give finer details later,” Nyathi said.
The police urged people to shun all forms of illegal contacts including demonstrations.
“People should desist from engaging in illegal activities such as unsanctioned demonstrations, especially this time when the nation is fighting the coronavirus,” Nyathi said.
