The mother of Crisis Coalition leader Rashid Mahiya picked by soldiers

I am writing this piece to request Zimbabweans to pray for Crisis Coalition leader Rashid Mahiya and his mother.

Rashid Mahiya's mother was picked by the soldiers today when they failed to locate her son (Rashid) at her home in Harare. We should all blow the whistle and pray for her safety during this hour of her physical/psychological torcher.

This regime is brutal how can they arrest a mother because of her son's democratic activism? We should not allow such kind of politics to take place in Zimbabwe. This is a clear demonstration that ZANU PF is a ruthless regime, punishing individuals because of the sins of their family members should be condemned. We need clean politics in our country.
We are all hiding because we know that the regime is after us. Rashid Mahiya is our hero and I urge him to be strong wherever he is.
Please join me in condemning the army and ZANU PF, they can kill, injure and torcher people but they won't destroy our resolve. There is no rule of law in Zimbabwe now and this persecution of citizens should stop. SADC and AU should intervene.
