Zimbabwe Republic Police in Harare have turned down an application by ZANU PF to stage a mass demonstration at the American Embassy in Harare against the murder of a black American George Floyd.

The demonstration was supposed to take place on the 4th of June.

In a response to an application made by Victor Matemadanda, the police said, “While the demonstration is for a noble cause, it contravenes Section 5(1) of SI 83 of 2020 of the Covid-19 lockdown offenses.

Take note that gatherings of whatever purpose, are prohibited during this period save for those exempted in the statutory instrument.

“May you please shelve the idea at the moment until we have passed this pandemic phase.”
