BLACKOUT : US SENATORS SLAM ED GOVT


The government should respect the rights of protesters and restore access to social media, internet and telephone services, according to Unites States Senators Chris Coons and Cory Booker.

Coons and Booker, who are members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement, “We are deeply troubled by reports of deaths, widespread arrests, beatings, and harassment of protestors by security forces of the Government of Zimbabwe. The Zimbabwean people have the constitutional right to protest peacefully and express themselves regarding developments in their country.

“Government officials and security forces must respond with professionalism and respect for human rights and the rule of law. We also call on the Government of Zimbabwe to rescind the directive ordering communication service providers to cut or restrict access to social media, internet, and telephone services. Such abrogations of constitutional and basic legal rights are not what the people of Zimbabwe were promised under President Mnangagwa.”

“… Instead, the government should work to meet the basic economic and social needs of its people. We strongly urge the Zimbabwean authorities to resolve the current situation through dialogue and non-violent, fully legal means, and for protesters to exercise their constitutional rights peacefully. Under no circumstances should the Zimbabwean government disregard the constitutional rights of its citizens, engage in the illegal suppression of expression and assembly, or employ the disproportionate use of force or extralegal violence to respond to the current situation.”


CHAMISA PLOTTING TO OVERTHROW ED : GOVT


The government says the MDC is trying to overthrow the government through the national shut down. But this will not work, according to Information Minister, Monica Mutsvangwa.

“Pursuant to this nefarious agenda, the MDC Alliance activated its notorious terror groups, which include the so-called Democratic Resistance Committee and para-military vanguard," Mutsvangwa told journalists at a news conference.

"Threats to overthrow a constitutionally-elected government by force and install an unelected person as president of Zimbabwe will be thwarted - it won't work.”

"The timing of these events is instructive in two ways, they come against the background where his Excellency the President ED (Emmerson) Mnangagwa is out of the country. And two, they are intended to undermine … the ongoing re-engagement efforts of the president to market Zimbabwe at high level forums such as at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland," Mutsvangwa said.

The opposition has denied any involvement in the shutdown, but has challenged Mnangagwa’s legitimacy following his July 30th election victory, which was decided by the Constitutional Court.
