statement on Madhuku attack
Students Union (ZINASU)
January 04, 2007
Students Union condemns the savage attack on Dr Madhuku and his
innocent family. This is yet another example of the on-going spate
of violence which is being perpetrated by the obvious political
cowards in our midst who have become so dangerously desperate that
they now direct their orgy of violence against Dr Madhuku`s innocent
wife and children.
We strongly believe
that this is a deliberate ploy to cow all progressive forces into
fear ahead of the pending mass protests thereby thwart their noble
efforts to push for elections to come at the time they are supposed
to come as enunciated in the constitution, howsoever defective.
We challenge all
democratic and progressive forces to remain united and resolute
on critical issues of policy like the holding of regular, free and
credible elections under a democratic electoral framework, independent
electoral bodies, international supervision which can only come
by way of a people driven and democratic constitution.
Dr Madhuku has
been articulate and consistent in his advancement of the above principles
and ideals and hence the systematic targeting of not only himself
but also his innocent family.
We challenge the
State to uphold the rule of law by guaranteeing Dr Madhuku and his
innocent Family adequate protection in the thick of such barbaric
acts. We will hold the State responsible for any eventuality that
will befall the Madhuku Family.
