Suspend or vary curfew: ZimRights
THE Zimbabwe Human Rights Association (Zimrights) has filed an urgent chamber application with the High Court for police and soldiers to be barred from harassing commuters after daily curfew commences at 6pm.
“It has to be noted that the majority of the affected people rely on public transport which is regrettably currently unable to meet demand such that one can wait for hours before the bus arrives which would be after the curfew,” Mashingaidze said.
“Unless the court intervenes, a pattern of intimidation, threats, assaults, humiliating and degrading treatment of citizens will take root and become the norm causing undue hardships to the public especially those who rely on public transport,” he added.
“If not, he would have dismissed it and not gone to the merits,” Damiso told the Daily News.
