MDC youths reintroduce Madzore marches

HARARE - MDC youths have resolved to resume “Free Solomon Madzore Marches” initiated in January as they step up efforts to have their leader released from incarceration.

Promise Mkwananzi, the secretary-general of the MDC youth assembly, told the Daily News yesterday they had decided to re-introduce the protest marches to mark 15 months of Madzore and other party activists’ incarceration.

“We are aware of the difficulties that we will face in getting police clearing the marches but what we are saying is, we are peacefully demonstrating for the release of our leader,” said Mkwananzi.

Madzore and 28 other MDC supporters were arrested in May last year on charges of murdering police inspector Petros Mutedza in Harare’s Glen View suburb.

The inaugural “Free Solomon Madzore March” was staged in Bulawayo in January this year and about 50 MDC youths were arrested.

Mkwananzi could not be drawn into revealing the actual date when the marches will resume.
