Chamisa gangs up with residents against police


Kuwadzana MP Nelson Chamisa, councillors and residents have teamed up to fight police officers and suspected Zanu PF youths whom they accuse of violently confiscating their goods and wares in fake operations.

Residents told the MP and councillors during a meeting that they were bitter with policemen who have embarked on a deliberate campaign to perpetually impoverish them.

A Kuwadzana councillor Urayayi Mangwiro said they would confront the police officers.

“We will say no to invaders and constables who take your goods. Constables are under councillors and they only help the police, but they are now rowdy and violent and grabbing people’s wares.

People are crying foul and widows come to me in tears seeking assistance. The ZRP is taking over the job of the municipal police and we will meet to stop this,” said Mangwiro.

Chamisa also accused Zanu PF of using the idle Kuwadzana library as a base to beat up residents suspected to be MDC-T supporters during election periods.

“We want it to be finished as soon as possible. People were raped and robbed there as it had become a base. It should be completed before elections so that it is not used again as a base,” Chamisa said.

Zanu PF has since refuted that accusation.
However, failure to complete construction of the library, has placed him under the spotlight with some residents describing him as a failure. Chamisa said $14 000 was required to complete the project.

Chamisa added he was yet to withdraw the $50 000 allocated under the Constituency Development Fund saying he was in the process of a consultation process to make sure every section of the community benefits.

Chamisa told residents Parliament would soon pass the Electoral Amendment Bill that will bring about changes in voter registration, among other issues.
