Yesterday, the Zimbabwe Republic Police was informing that the major parts of the Central Business District in Harare will be closed off the two days the Constitutional Court on the 22nd and 23rd August 2018. As the petitions against the Harmonized Elections on the 30th July 2018. The Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) must really be afraid of the truth or even ordinary broadcast, even demonstrations near the venue, as there is only limited broadcasting of the trial, as the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Company (ZBC), the state TV channel, which is loyal to the President. Is the ones who will have the feed. The Social Media and other channels have been dismissed by the judges. Therefore, there is already limited views and perspectives coming from the Courts.
This is the newest now:
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police wishes to inform the nation that people who will be attending the Constitutional Court on 22 – 23 August 2018, will not be allowed to carry electronic gadgets like cell phones, laptops, cameras or other recording devices. To avoid unnecessary delays please leave these items elsewhere. Only accredited individuals will be allowed access to the Constitutional Court premises. We kindly request for co – operation with law enforcement agents in that regard” (Zimbabwe Republic Police, 21.08.2018).
We can wonder what the Con-Court is afraid of, that the public will release a cuzz-word or something. That the judges will slip-up and say “futseke” to the lawyers of Chamisa. Because, the state and the judiciary are really preparing for the worst. They are thinking this is Armageddon. President Emmerson Mnangagwa has already at SADC Summit said he has won this case. Therefore, we are not hearing from the Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga. It is like they are afraid of the Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance (MDC Alliance) Nelson Chamisa, who has the right to question this election and how it was conducted. There was many shortfalls in the announcing of the results as well as the voter-rolls and tallying in general.
We can wonder as the barricades of the CBD in Harare, will the army be out too and fortify the Con-Court? Since this is the final nail in the coffin to secure the Operation Restore Legacy. Will the Zimbabwe Defence Force show-up and show loyalty to the Lacoste party aka ZANU-PF. The ruling regime and the ones in control. Will they be ordered out and possibly silence the public as they did after the polls?
The ZRP is really afraid of the Social Media and mentioned that yesterday in the statement. As they are telling the public, that the ZBC will tell the truth and broadcast that. Nothing else matters, we just have to await the drop of the Court Documents. As the state will muffle with it and maybe even co-sign the needed verdict in favor of the state. This is really looking like the ZANU-PF and the authorities are afraid of the people’s opinions or even media freedom. As they are just opening for their favored station and also afraid of anyone else leaking the verdict. Is that what the Con-Court is afraid of?
Are Mnangagwa and Chiwenga so paranoid and know they stole the elections, so they have to block anyone to leak the verdict and the trail, as they are afraid of being humiliated in public?
