Harare – Zimbabwe National Student Union (ZINASU) President, Takudzwa Ngadziore was today heavily assaulted by police after addressing a presser near Impala Car Rental an official has confirmed.
He was addressing the members of the media with other students.
Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition (CZC) has since issued a statement against such acts of human rights violations.
“We implore the government to uphold citizens fundamental rights as enshrined in the constitution including the right to life, the right to protest peacefully as well as freedom of assembly and association,” CZC said.
The CZC is appalled by the continued crackdown on the dissent by the Zimbabwean government.
Last week, Ngadziore was also arrested for taking part in a demonstration at Impala Car Rentals whose vehicles are allegedly being used by state agents to abduct opposition and civic society activists. Journalists who were present at the presser were also harassed.
The motive of the presser was to address the issue of the car that was rented at Impala Car Rental that was used for the abduction of MSU student Tawanda Mucheiwa.
Ngadziore was advocating for the rights of the students in the tertiary schools. He said that they are not going to be silenced but will speak out against the injustices that are taking place.
“We are not afraid of death, we know that one day we are going to die,” he said.
