Presidential Spokesperson George Charamba says the deployment of armed forces in Bulawayo on Tuesday was an operation to prevent an unnamed group of persons who want to stage an anti-government activity.

Writing on Twitter using his moniker Jamwanda, Charamba said, "Some Editors upgrade themselves for securocrats merely on media qualifications!! The State decided on an enhanced lockdown last week acting on the basis of information and threats which civilians never know beforehand, will never know unless informed! And it has to be prudent to do so."

He added that the persons planning mischief in the country should know that the state is watching them.

"Quite often, it isn't! Those who had planned mischief to coincide with the June 16 Day of the African Child, in the hope of misappropriating it for own ends know why what happened did. More important, they should know all the evil they plan is in the full glare of the watchful State.

"Hazviite; hazvisi kuzoitika, hazvizomboitika!! Keep within the four corners of the law and follow tenets of lawful, peaceful opposition, and your days on this Earth as opposition will be added! Kuyambirana pachi pedo!!!"

Soldiers and police officers besieged  Bulawayo on Tuesday barring anyone from entering the cbd.
