Police force or party thugs?

ON April 4 I witnessed two ZRP open trucks weaving dangerously in heavy traffic, whilst laden to the brim with ZRP members chanting Zanu PF slogans.


I always knew

that the ZRP was an extension of Zanu PF, but it was only on Monday when I realised the extent of their unprofessional bias.


They were behaving like thugs: chanting, wielding and pointing their truncheons menacingly at passers-by.


They were obviously trying to instill fear in innocent civilians, letting them know who is in charge.


If this is a taste of things to come, then God help us. Be afraid, be very, very afraid…
