EFF Zimbabwe President Innocent Lutshutsha Gagu Ndibali has warned the members of the Zimbabwean security services to desist from infringing on the rights of citizens during the lockdown period.

In an emotive statement issued on Monday Ndibali said, "EFF wishes to warn all men of the uniform that if they violate the human rights of the citizens of the country, they will one day have justice for their deeds. The rule of law shall return to Zimbabwe and their deeds will not be forgotten nor forgiven should they victimise the people."

Ndibali said Zimbabweans do not have enough money to stock food hence they will be forced to go out and look for food.

"Inevitably given the total collapse of the national economy that Zanu-PF and MDC -A at national and local government have presided over in the last few decades, some people won't have stocked up any food supplies so they will be forced to go looking for food.

"Given the track record of the Zimbabwe security forces whose deployment has previously led to death of defenceless civilians in our streets we appeal to individual members of the armed forces to listen to their consciences and avoid terrorising their fellow citizens."

President Emmerson Mnangagwa issued a 21 days lockdown decree beginning 30th of March 2020.

He announced that members of the security forces will be preserving order during the period.

In Bulawayo, hordes of people thronged various shops on Tuesday to queue for maize meal.

The Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe has announced that their members will be distributing maize meal to retailers in suburbs to avoid people flocking to the CBD.
