Local rights group, Tajamuka is in the process of mobilising citizens towards a collective action against the government which they accuse of turning a deaf ear while the masses suffer.

Addressing journalists at a press conference, Tajamuka Secretary General Gilbert Bwende said they were still consulting with stakeholders.

“We are presently consulting with various stakeholders, mobilising citizens towards a peaceful collective action against the government. in the shortest possible time, we will be pronouncing a clear course of action to hold the government to account.

“We are an action oriented human rights social movement, we have a citizen driven agenda.

“We did it in 2016, we can do it today and in times to come until the people of Zimbabwe enjoy their political liberties,” Bwende said.

Bwende said they would also be staging demonstrations at hotels where they believe government officials are staying.

“We also hear that Mtuli Ncube, Nick Mangwana, Patrick Chabata and other high ranking Mnangagwa allies are staying at five star Miekles, Sheraton Hotels paid for by the state.

“In 2014, we fought tooth and nail until the then Vice president Phelekezela was forcibly removed from a local hotel having stayed there for close to a year using the taxpayer’s money.

“We are putting this on notice, we are coming for you at those hotels and we will endure peaceful protests at those hotels until you vacate.

“We also noted the back door return of road blocks accompanied by senseless spot fines, again we are putting you on notice,” he said.

The group is also demanding for the unconditional release of people arrested during the January shutdown.

“Mnangagwa can not compensate white farmers before acknowledging and compensating Gukurahundi victims. 

“The government says there is no money yet they have money to give white commercial farmers.

After the operation of restore legacy, one wonders what legacy has been restored.

“We demand the immediate unconditional release of all those being held communicado, detained under tramped up charges of subversion,” Bwende said.
