Jailed MDC-T youth leader remains defiant


Incarcerated MDC-T youth leader Solomon Madzore remains defiant, declaring from Chikurubi Maximum Prison, jail would not deter him from his goal.

Madzore, who has spent two months in remand prison for allegedly taking part in the murder of a police officer in Glen View in May this year, is said to be in high spirits, claiming his incarceration was “prophetic”.

MDC-T Youth Assembly spokesperson Clifford Hlatywayo who visited Madzore this week said: “I saw him yesterday and he gave me a message to the people. He said his arrest was nothing new, but was prophetic and that the MDC-T will be ruling after the next elections.

“He insists that the army must remain in their barracks and must not be unleashed on civilians. He told me youths should fight for a clean voters roll and that the MDC-T will not participate in any election with a voters roll in shambles.”

Madzore is said to have written a message on a piece of paper to his league, part of which read: “This is an induction and it’s like oil to us. If they think they are hurting us, they are not, they are actually cultivating our revolutionary spirits.

“To all Zim youths, we say justice delayed is justice denied. We are doing fine and able to make up the way forward. Mbare (MDC) youths please do something to protect our parents. No one should run away from Mbare, let’s defend our parents.”
Madzore was denied bail on Monday and will have to wait for trial next year.
