Zuma under pressure over GPA

-

The MDC –T South Africa branch on Friday held a protest march in Pretoria to exert pressure on President Jacob Zuma to ensure Zanu PF implements outstanding Global Political Agreement (GPA) issues and stop the former ruling party from what they view as persecution of MDC-T activists.

Yesterday, the party said the protests would be held every month until reforms were implemented.

“The important major reforms towards a free and fair election should undoubtedly begin with the removal of members of the intelligence organisation who have been planted in the ZEC (Zimbabwe Electoral Commission) secretariat by Zanu PF to rig the election in their favour.

“Justice should not only be done, but must be seen to be done. It is unthinkable that the members of the secretariat who went into hiding with election results in 2008 in connivance with Zanu PF will now prepare a free and fair election,” the MDC-T said in a statement.

Among the MDC-T’s major concerns is the continued incarceration of youth assembly leader Solomon Madzore and eight others, facing allegations of murdering a police inspector, Petros Mutedza, in Glen View in May last year.

The protests are set to be held at South African embassies worldwide as the former opposition party attempts to get international sympathy ahead of polls which Zanu PF wants to be held this year.
