president on the run again!
Students Solidarity Trust
June 19, 2007
members of the dreaded state security apparatus in Zimbabwe ransacked
two homes in Glen-Norah and Waterfalls as they intensified their
manhunt for ZINASU
President, Promise Mkwananzi.
The ZINASU President
has been on the police wanted list since last year - and their
manhunt gathered momentum after the ill-fated assault of opposition
leaders in police custody in March.
He has been constantly
on the run.
The thugs assaulted Mkwananzi's
family members in the ensuing melee in Glen-Norah after they failed
to find him, and proceeded to Waterfalls where their attempts to
locate him proved futile.
The raid on
these two homes comes in the wake of a similar raid on the home
of Lawrence Mashungu, Vice-Chairperson the Students
Christian Movement of Zimbabwe (SCMZ). The police assaulted
student activists from the University
of Zimbabwe were arrested on Saturday night, on trumped charges
of stoning a University of Zimbabwe staff bus. Kudakwashe Mapundu,
the Secretary General of UZ Students Executive Council (SEC) and
Caesar Fitiya, a member of the Students Representative Assembly
(SRA) were the ones in police custody.
The two student leaders
endured extensive beating at the hands of college security, derisorily
referred to as green bombers. The two have since been released from
police custody at the Avondale Police Station.
