go door to door in arrests
of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA)
August 24, 2007
At four am today Law
and Order Police officers started to go door-to-door arresting members
of WOZA. As it stands four members, Rosemary Siziba, Margaret Ndlovu,
Idah Ndebele and Maria Moyo are confirmed to have been taken. Other
members refused to open their doors in the dark.
At 4:45 am they arrived
at the gate of Magodonga Mahlangu, broke her gate padlock and proceeded
to try to break down the front and back doors. They did not succeed
and left taking 'snowy' the dog with them. They were heard insulting
both Mahlangu and Williams who are both leaders.
In Masvingo, Police also
searched the homes of two members late last night and upon finding
nothing promised to return to arrest the members who were not at
home. Police officers said they are looking form information about
the 'Sheroes Congress'.
WOZA and MOZA conducted
their annual assembly in rural Matabeleland this past weekend and
it is assumed that these arrests and searches are an attempt to
obtain information about the congress resolutions.
News is still coming
in from other areas.
