Zim ex-VP calls for dialogue among citizens

02 August 2016, 12:42

Harare – Zimbabwe’s former deputy President Joice Mujuru has called for dialogue among citizens rather than the use of force, a report said on Tuesday.

According to NewsDay, the leader of the newly formed Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) said this after she had showed her support for the spokesperson of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association Douglas Mahiya’s bail application on Monday.

Mujuru claimed that it was unfair for the ruling elite to ignore calls by citizen for a better country.

“It is just unfair. Zimbabweans are trying to show us, as leaders, that things are not good. I urge dialogue among citizens rather than the use of force,” Mujuru was quoted saying.

Reports indicated that Mahiya was arrested on Wednesday last week in Harare after the group had issued a statement in which they slammed President Robert Mugabe's "dictatorial tendencies" and accused him of presiding over a declining economy.

The veterans of the country's 1970s liberation war, normally staunch allies of Mugabe, vowed they would not support him if he sought re-election in 2018.

Mahiya was later released on $300 bail.

Meanwhile, reports have also claimed that soon after the court case, another ex-freedom fighter Victor Matemadanda was arrested for allegedly insulting the office of the president.
