Release political detainees, arrest terror gang members

It continues to baffle the minds of Zimbabweans as they day in and day out witness the arrest of innocent MDC activists yet known Zanu PF terror gangs continue to walk scot free.
On Saturday, Shepherd Mumba was assaulted by known Zanu PF hoodlums,Jim Kunaka, Gochera, Pasco, Gomwe and Moffart in Highfield but police took no action. The police inaction has compelled Zimbabweans to call for security sector reform.
29 other MDC activists are in police custody, some for almost a year, facing fabricated charges of murdering a Glen View policeman in May 2011. The MDC calls upon the Inclusive Government to constitute the Police Service Commission so that the acting commissioner, Augustine Chihuri is retired and a competent Police Commissioner General appointed.
Zimbabweans are tired of violence. The police should not provoke the nation into action. The people have remained calm over the years in the forlorn hope that such pharaohnic tendencies may subside.
The MDC calls for professional policing.
The people’s struggle for real change: Let’s finish it!!
