POLICE yesterday banned yet another MDC rally that was set to be held in Chitungwiza's Zengeza East constituency - the third such opposition event to be prohibited in a fortnight - as the democratic space in the country dwindles, the Daily News reports.

Of late, authorities have been making it impossible for the Nelson Chamisa-led MDC to carry out any events, including rallies and other party activities, citing failure to comply with the Maintenance of Peace and Order Act (Mopa).

MDC MP for the area, Goodrich Chimbaira, said he had notified police in Chitungwiza of his intention to hold a rally on Sunday at Unit H Shopping Centre to give feedback on what has been happening in Parliament to his constituency.

However, the officer commanding police in Chitungwiza district, one S Mujiwa, denied them the right to go ahead, saying the MDC had not complied with provisions of the law.
