Anger as SA police allow anti-Mugabe group to stage demo
South African police have given a group of Zimbabweans the go ahead to stage anti-President Robert Mugabe protests to coincide with a weekend regional meeting to tackle the crisis in the southern African country.
But the move has angered the veteran ruler’s Zanu-PF party, which has described it as “scandalous and offensive to natural justice”.
The presidents of Mozambique, Zambia and Namibia, who make up the security and politics organ of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), will meet the leaders of Zimbabwe’s three party coalition government to discuss Harare’s preparations for fresh elections.
A Zanu-PF advance party to the Johannesburg meeting said a similar request by its supporters to hold demonstrations at the venue of the summit was turned down.
South African President Jacob Zuma is also the facilitator of the Zimbabwe peace talks.
Two months ago, President Mugabe accused him of bias and the comments led to a harsh exchange of words between Harare and Pretoria.
“For the host and the facilitator to allow one of the political parties to have a demonstration against the other, is scandalous.
“It’s either all of them are allowed or none of them,” said Prof Jonathan Moyo who is leading the Zanu-PF delegation in Johannesburg.
