ZANU PF gives advice to MDC
Speaking to ZBC Mangwana said it was not necessary for the police to wait until law and order had been broken and buildings have been destroyed for them to pronounce that the demonstrations were violent but they were within the law to argue before the courts and the judge concurred with them.

The MDC went to court to have the police ban nullified saying its demonstration was unstoppable.
Police issued the ban claiming that intelligence had shown that the demonstrations would turn violent.
