EU, USA condemn violence

HARARE - Resurgent cases of violence that resulted in the death of two Zanu PF activists last week have yet again thrust Zimbabwe on the international spotlight with the European Union (EU) and the United States of America (USA) raising the red flag on the country's leadership.

With factional fights in President Robert Mugabe's Zanu PF getting dirtier by the day, the ugly head of violence has reared its ugly head again, especially within the ruling party.

In a statement, the USA public affairs department said police should investigate all cases of violence in order to bring to book the perpetrators.

"The US Embassy notes our grave concern over the reports of recent incidents of politically-motivated violence in Zimbabwe. Acts of intimidation and inter- or intra-party political violence are unacceptable in a democracy, and those responsible for instigating such violence should be brought to justice," read part of the statement.

Two men,  Lloyd Jambawu, 31 and Marko Masenda, 37, were axed to death by Proud Mupambwa, who was later found dead in a police cell, in Chitungwiza last week in an incident that many trace to the ruling party internal turmoil.

The trio were all members of Zanu PF and on the fateful Saturday they had all planned to attend a party meeting in the dormitory town of Chitungwiza.

The EU said political parties should uphold democratic principles so as to ensure that peace prevails in the country and called upon relevant officials to ensure that perpetrators of violence are brought to book.

"Those responsible for such violence should be brought to justice. The EU encourages all parties to respect democratic principles and contribute to a peaceful, just and democratic society," the delegation said in a statement.

The hiatus in the country's usually volatile political playing field was recently broken by violent clashes between Zanu PF and MDC supporters in Harare South and since then tension has been rising, amid concerns from observers that the situation could soon degenerate into chaos especially given the fact that in just over two years time the country will be holding general elections.

I was crushed when my lover of three years has gone to be with another woman. I cried and cried every day, until it got so bad that I went to the Internet for help. I lost a lot of time and effort trying to recover until I got to the real one. And it is their final magic. You were different from the rest - you are the diamond in the rough. Thank you from the bottom of my soul! I'm very happy. I hope God bless you as you have to help me my love back, to visit him at (thebrotherhoodtemple@gmail.com) can be of great help to all of you.
