'Zimbabwe army training police to crush protests'
Writing on micro blogging site Twitter Moyo said, "The Police Support Unit is currently conducting #CrowdControl training at 2 Brigade, Cranbone, bringing together the Army, Police and CIO."
Moyo added that the police that bashed MDC supporters on Wednesday were from the military base.
When questioned what is wrong with the security forces sharing information Moyo said, "Sharing information is not the same as sharing uniforms to enable the Army to brutalise civilians in military uniforms!"

The vicious "cops" that unleashed yesterday's gratuitous violence on MDC supporters, bystanders & passersbys came from the 2 Brigade Unit! pic.twitter.com/RmEmRDSRXv— Prof Jonathan Moyo (@ProfJNMoyo) November 21, 2019
In February this year a Harare man told the court that he got a military uniform he used to terrorise residents from the ZANU PF headquarters.
The man Shepherd Magorimbo was standing trial after being arrested for a string of robberies that took place during the violent protests that rocked Zimbabwe in January.
"We were given the uniform at the party office," Magorimbo said in response to a question by the prosecutor.
