Treason craze hits military government

The military government today charged party Deputy Treasurer General and Kuwadzana East MP Hon Charlton Hwende with subverting a Constitutionally elected government.

Most MPs including Hon Amos Chibaya and Hon Joanna Mamombe are facing the same charge.

Holding divergent views does not constitute treasonous conduct. In any case the military government is not a Constitutionally elected government.

The charges expose a failure to break from the past by Zanu PF.

During the many years of their political apprenticeship, the leaders of the military government were part to a process which accused political rivals of treason.

They charged Dr Joshua Nkomo, Lookout Masuku, Dr Dumiso Dabengwa, Dr Morgan Richard Tsvangirai, Prof Welshman Ncube and Hon Tendai Biti among others.

The new leaders on the list are just a continuation.

Persecution of MDC leaders and members must stop, mass and fast tracked trials, denial of due process and violations of people's rights must also stop.

Behold the New. Change that Delivers!
