PF celebrates 'victory' as queues continue to mount in the city
in Zimbabwe Coalition
July 06, 2007
Scores of ZANU
PF supporters including war veterans and the youth militia were
this morning gathered at the party headquarters in Harare waiting
to be addressed by their leadership on what they called 'successful'
price slashes. The Catalyst team tracked a group of war veterans
marching in a celebratory manner from 4th street along Jason Moyo
Avenue to the party headquarters at Rotten Row. The group was chanting
ZANU PF slogans and commending price controls imposed by the government.
Unlike most cases where the police disrupt and heavily assault opposition
voices for demonstrating, they were seen escorting the war veterans,
ZANU PF supporters and the Border Gezi Youth Militia to their destination.
The celebrations come
against the backdrop of mounting queues and food shortages around
the country. Since the government imposed price controls, it has
become difficult to access basic commodities mainly bread, mealie
meal, cooking oil, sugar and beef.
