General, Edson Hlatshwayo will appear in court today facing charges
of mallicious damage to property.
Edson is alleged to have petrol bombed a state owned Zimbabwe United
Passengers Company (ZUPCO) bus together with some Movement for Democratic
Change (MDC) youths at Mashate Township some 41 km from Masvingo
He has pleaded not guilty to the charge. Dumisani Hwacha of Muzenda
and partners is representing him.
The government is sponsoring hired thugs and youth militia to carry
out acts of terrorism blaming it on the opposition. This is mearnt
to create an impression that the opposition is violent hense justifying
its brutal, total and vicious clampdown on the pro-democracy activists.
Meanwhile, the two female student leaders who were arrested on the
28th of March were subjected to brutal assaults and they could hardly
walk and talk when they were released yesterday.
