Police round up and fine vendors who cheered on Chamisa
Chamisa's convoy was mobbed by scores of residents including children who were chanting 'President! President!' as he returned from the burial of activist Patson Dzamara in Mutoko.
The MDC leader stepped out of the vehicle and took time to talk to some of his supporters.
"They were asked: 'Don't you know your president?' Some were fined as much as Z$500 under dubious charges," Mahere said.
An admission of guilt form signed by one of the vendors, and seen by ZimLive, said they had been arrested for "obstructing free movement of traffic and persons" on the Harare-Nyamapanda Road.
We are appalled by reports from Mashonaland East that the police have arrested roadside vendors in Murehwa who greeted and cheered President Nelson Chamisa when he passed by their market on Saturday. The vendors included women and children. The illegitimate regime is panicking. pic.twitter.com/Ad2x3HoNKm— MDC Alliance Harare (@MdcHarare) August 31, 2020
