THE Zanu PF Youth League has urged law enforcement agents to deal with the planned violent demonstrations being organised by opposition activists and all those involved.
In separate statements yesterday, Zanu PF Youth League provincial structures said the planned demonstrations are meant to further an illegal regime change agenda.
Zanu PF Mashonaland West Youth League chairperson Vengai Musengi said holding a demonstration during a pandemic poses a danger to public health.
“Opposition elements are keen to cause violence at the end of this month,” said Musengi.
“Such acts pose a serious threat to the safety of members of the public and seriously undermine social order. They warrant society’s most severe condemnation.”
He said the organisers of the demonstrations were using social media to promote attacks on State institutions and private property.
The police, Musengi said, must use appropriate force to disrupt the planned demonstrations and arrest those involved.
Youth League chairperson for Matabeleland North Province, Tamuka Nyoni, said opposition elements were trying to destabilise the country through demonstrations.
“The provincial league, as much as other progressive forces in our country, is saddened and disheartened by news circulating in the electronic and print media regarding the 31st of July so called ‘mass protests’ by regime change agenda advocates,” said Nyoni.
“They are trying by all means to polarise the peaceful environment enjoyed by the citizenry, which is trying to come to terms with the reality of this global pandemic which is making lives unbearable.”
He said the organisers are criminal elements who intend to overthrow a constitutionally-elected Government which has a mandate that runs until 2023.
“We, therefore, call upon the citizenry to fight these forces in order to maintain the peace that we enjoy in the midst of this pandemic.
The Mat North Youth league appeals to like-minded and progressive formations who share our vision, to shun these calls and exercise maximum unity.”-The Sunday Mail
