Riot police yesterday thwarted a demonstration by MDC activists who had attended a court hearing in solidarity with 10 vendors who were arrested over police helmets found in the basement of a city building last week.

The activists were led by MDC Mabelreign councillor Denford Ngadziore and former student's unionists Makomborero Haruzivishe, who broke into a song that implicated police in the death of Hilton Tamangani, a vendor who died in remand prison on Saturday.

Meanwhile, a defiant MDC says it has complied with the law and the ZRP has no right to ban their demonstration set for Thursday.

The country's biggest opposition party recently notified police of its intention to hold a demonstration this Thursday to register its disgruntlement over the deteriorating economic situation in the country as well as to pressure President Emmerson Mnangagwa to convene "genuine" dialogue to remedy the situation.
