Repression Continues Under Mnangagwa's 'Corrupt' Rule

"Dark forces", "terrorists" and "bad apples" were just some of the words President Emmerson Mnangagwa has used to describe his critics following an anti-government protest thwarted by security agents in July. Now outspoken former Zanu-PF youth league national political commissar, Godfrey Tsenengamu, who has transitioned into a fierce critic of government corruption, is in hiding, and says state security agents are harassing his family and threatening to wipe them out if he does not come out. Opposition politicians say ordinary people have been arrested in recent weeks, others allegedly abducted and tortured, while Lovender Chiwaya, an opposition Councillor in Hurungwe was allegedly abducted and murdered by suspected security agents.
