Mugabe Unleashes Police Brutality To Stop Anti-Bond Note Protest

Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, has been accused of using police brutality to disburse yet another protest in Harare yesterday which was against his government's policy to introduce Bond notes.

Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor,Dr John Mangudya, made an announcement that bond notes are set to be introduced in mid September.
 
Thousands of Zimbabweans took to the streets to vehemently reject bond notes, which they viewed as a reminder of the 2008 bearers cheques, which were heavily hit by inflation.

President Mugabe's government is said to have resorted to under the belt tactics to disperse the crowd by using police brutality on the protestors.

In defence,Police spokesperson Senior Assistant Charity Charamba claimed the protesters were causing chaos and were the first to attack a policeman.

“Police had to move in and disperse them. They also chased a police officer who was coming from a bank and undressed him, taking his uniform and shoes. During the process three people were arrested and one of them was found with the police officer’s shoes in his bag,” said Snr Asst Comm Charamba.

A number of people were injured after the government militia was unleashed on the protestors. MDC-T's Thabitha Khumalo was one of the injured during the tussle.

Mugabe's government has been brought under critic for its use of brute force on people against its policies.
