Another attempt to distabilise MDC Youth Assembly
Harare, 12 January 2011; After a failed attempt by ZANU PF to silence and destroy the MDCYA through the partisan ZRP by arresting and persecuting Solomon Madzore and other MDC Youth Assembly members, today they were at it again. Heavily armed anti-riot police have besieged Harvest House, the MDC headquarters and forcefully arrested members manning MDC regalia shop. Reasons for the arrests are unknown.
We condemn the arrests. This is a deliberate ploy by an old and idealess organization to distabilise and disturb the Youth Assembly activities and operations. The arrests are unconstitutional and therefore, illegal. We call for their immediate release.
MDCYA will remain resolute, united and focused. We are not intimidated or waived by those barbaric acts incited by a distrusted and dangerous party. Our members have been illegally arrested, detained, tortured, maimed and murdered by our adversary since our formation 12 years ago.
