MDC-T secretary general Douglas Mwonzora‏ has questioned why people should be arrested for booing Grace Mugabe when there is no law that prohibits persons from booing any one.

The remarks come in the wake of four Zanu PF members in Bulawayo having been arrested for booing Grace at White City Stadium on November 4.

"How can people be arrested for booing Grace Mugabe?  There is no law that proscribes the booing or even the insulting of the First Lady. This is abuse of other Zimbabweans," Mwonzora said.

Mabutho Lucky Moyo (32) of Lobengula, Mayibongwe Evans Zvigadza (28) of Barbourfields, Walter Sibanda (24) of Tshabalala and Dephine Dzvange (33) of Nketa 7 were allegedly being led by former Zanu-PF Bulawayo Central district chairman Magura Charumbira who is at large when they booed the first lady.

The court heard that they allegedly sang and made gestures throwing hands in the air after the First Lady said Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo was being persecuted for nothing.
