  • War vets disrupt CHRA/MAZ voter registration survey meetings
    Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA)
    June 21, 2013

    A group of overzealous War vets aligned to Zanu-PF today besieged the CHRA Drop-In Centre in town and disrupted meetings that are being held in collaboration with the Media Alliance of Zimbabwe on the right to access to information on elections. The CHRA and MAZ had lined up meetings with local ward structures from 15 wards on their perceptions with regards to access to information on elections. A group of 8 war veterans besieged the meetings and demanded that CHRA volunteers and staff immediately close the offices.

    The CHRA Drop in centre in the City Centre receives about 100 members of the public each day and today, we were expecting to receive at least 250 residents to assist in the survey.

    CHRA would like to inform all members of the public, partners and members that the office will be temporarily closed down until the situation normalises for the safety of our members.
